Title: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on October 25, 2015, 08:42:35 pm
The train sits at the station on the edge of Canterlot, only lanterns lighting up the area. The stars are overhead on the warm breezy night as a few ponies, much less than the daytime, trot about their business. All of the stalls except one is open, same for the lone ticket booth; the train itself still runs, preparing for it's overnight trek to the major city on the edge of Equestria. Foxtrot steps onto the platform and looks around, hood up and jacket zipped shut he looks around and goes to the ticket booth. After a quick exchange with the worker he returns with everyone's tickets and passes them out. "Here you all go. Round trip tickets to Manehattan." The unicorn pauses, looking over to the train, "Guys, this is some serious stuff that'll happen. As much as I want to, I... can't guarantee your safety. If either of you want out, now's the time."

Nivalia plucks the ticket off of Foxtrot's hoof and stores it away. "Well you know what my answer is bro. We're in this together..." She remembers what she heard in the tape, about Victor and Sierra. Nivalia desires to tell him, but knows what could happen if she does; a decision that has her torn both mentally and emotionally. The changeling shoves those thoughts to the back of her mind, for now there are more important matters to tend to. "I'm with you Fox, we all are."

Broadshield stands at the platform waiting for Foxtrot, donning a casual grey hoodie with an armoured vest underneath for added protection, stowing away his armour and weapons from earlier with the Equinox medics. Taking a ticket from Foxtrot and putting it in his pocket, he says "Fox, you don't need to worry, I got your back in this, and if needed, so does all of Equinox. The 26 are a threat to Equestria and surrounding nations, there's no way were gonna stand by and watch their madness unfold."

Tinder takes the ticket from Foxtrot and puts it in her bag, "I have your back as well, I know I'm not quite as prepared as these two but I'll help as much as I can." She smiles at him and then looks back down to the ground. The only part of this whole trip that she's really worried about is being stuck near Broadshield for that long, fearful that he'll somehow just know the things she has in her bag. But because she wants to support Fox she's not leaving yet.

Post by: Foxtrot on October 26, 2015, 08:51:58 am
Foxtrot couldn't help but smile at their reply. "Thanks guys, that means a lot to me. Let's get going, the train won't sit for us forever." After adjusting his pack, the unicorn trots over to the train, Nivalia following right after. The two present their tickets and board the train, walking over to a rather large booth in first class.

Post by: Broadshield on October 26, 2015, 09:02:36 am
While listening to Foxtrot, Broadshield glances over to Tinder, who is still looking down and not making any eye contact with him. 'I wonder why I make her so nervous, maybe I'll ask her on the train.' He thinks to himself. Making sure he has everything he needs, he follows Nivalia and Foxtrot into the train and into the booth.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on October 26, 2015, 04:15:20 pm
Tinder lets everyone go on ahead of her, taking this second alone to grab her pills and take a couple. She smiles a tiny bit and follows them onto the train and into the booth where they are all. She sits down and gets comfy in the seat, glad that she doesn't have to walk anymore for a little while, getting ready for the long train ride out.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on October 27, 2015, 08:20:32 am
Foxtrot slides the booth door open and steps in. Leather seats, a small ceiling fan with a light, and even cup holders adorn the booth inside. Stepping in he shoots over to the window seat, taking his guitar, machete, and backpack and stores them in the overhead compartment. Sitting down he takes a deep breath and leans back on his cushioned seat. "Ah... Nothing like doing nothing for a while."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on October 27, 2015, 08:33:42 am
Nivalia enters right after Foxtrot, putting her things away as well before sitting next to him. "Were not there yet bro. We still need to figure out what to do about your triggers. We're going after the ones responsible for your erratic behavior. The last thing we need is for them to activate you again and turn on us. I swear you using your hooves to blast us with magic is not fun at all." Foxtrot sits up straight and looks at Nivalia, rather surprised and confused. "What?" The changeling asks before her eyes widen at the revelation. "Oh my goodness! That's right, you don't remember what happened. Fox... You have magic. It never left, you just can use your horn; they made it where you use your hooves. I think I know how I can break this control they have on you, but it's a long shot."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on October 28, 2015, 07:56:15 am
"Nivalia has a point, the 26 know exactly what to do to trigger your behaviour. If we just go in without a plan to stop them from turning you on us, we're gonna have some problems." he adds to what Nivalia said. "We're not leaving for a little while anyway, they're still loading up passengers and cargo. We're probably going to leave in maybe 5 or 10 minutes. Its a long train ride to Manehatten so we could probably discuss a plan of some sort on the way there." he says. He then puts all of his gear in his bag on the ground as opposed to stowing it away properly.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on October 28, 2015, 01:18:20 pm
Tinder keeps her bag on her back, for she's not a big fan of showing her weak spot off to everybody and she likes keeping the things in that bag near her at all times. She squishes into the booth seat to get comfy and yawns, nodding slightly to show that she's listening to the conversation. Not wanting to risk being without weapon in hand if someone comes, she grabs one of her daggers from her bag and lays it next to her with her hoof resting on it.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on October 28, 2015, 02:47:14 pm
Foxtrot remains silent for a moment, the thought that he still has his magic still sinking in. Taking a deep breath, he looks over to Nivalia, knowing full well what she's implying. "Are you sure it'll work? We haven't tried that since we were kids Niv and..." He trails off, "I don't know... I don't know how messed up I am right now."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on October 28, 2015, 03:05:29 pm
"Fox. I've done that many many times after we were kids. Mom and pop would be p!ssed if the found out but... Yea, did it anyway. Besides, I have a degree in psychology, I'll know what steps to follow. You just have to trust me, please." Foxtrot sighs, then nods, getting up and sitting  opposite of Nivalia. The changeling glances over to Tinder and Broadshield, "I'm going to do what changelings do best... other than shapeshifting. I'm going to hypnotize him, get in his head and hopefully break whatever conditioning they had on him."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on October 28, 2015, 03:18:01 pm
Tinder stares at them both for a second, letting what was just said sink in before she nods again, happy to know that there is a chance that it'll fix it.  She pulls her dagger in a bit closer to herself, for easy access in case this plan of theirs goes horribly wrong. "Be careful."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on October 28, 2015, 04:51:13 pm
Hearing what Nivalia will do to foxtrot makes Broadshield both uneasy, as well as a little bit angry, considering the past time he was aware that a changeling hypnotized a pony, Canterlot nearly fell. Wanting to avoid that, and to stop her from doing what changelings do, Broadshield chimed in "Nivalia, I don't know. Maybe there's another way we can do this without your changeling magic. Besides, as it's been said, we don't know what will happen if you do it, we may get another moment of Foxtrot attacking us, as well as civilians on the train."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on October 29, 2015, 06:43:16 pm
Nivalia looks over to Broadshield, his concerns quite applicable to their situation. "I know it's risky, but the only other way would be to use the methods the Directors used. Unfortunately none of us know how to do that, and we don't have the time to learn it." She looks over to Foxtrot, "We can restrain him first, put him in cuffs and be ready for anything. Any signs of kickback and I can ease off. I'll be careful, he is my brother after all."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on October 29, 2015, 07:37:41 pm
Tinder nods a couple times, "I think we should do it. Breaking whatever they have done to Fox is worth the risk, we can't walk in there with the risk of him attacking us. If anything happens while you do this we can subdue him I'm sure." She smiles slightly at them both, checking again that her bag is securely closed because she doesn't want her stuff flying out if something happens.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on October 30, 2015, 01:53:07 am
This want a situation Broadshield wanted to find himself in. But they had a point, as much as he hated to admit. "Ok, we'll do it," he said in a defeated tone. "But just remember to be careful and be quiet. There are still passengers loading up and we don't want to cause a ruckus and some stampede. So go for it, but be careful." As he says this, he traces into his bag and brings out some of the throwing knives he brought with him from his bag and holds onto them, hoping he won't have to use it, unless worse comes to worse.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on October 30, 2015, 11:04:20 pm
Ocean got up from where he was seated and boarded the train, keeping an eye out for anyone who could possibly recognise him. Finding his seat, he looked up to see the military stallion who was in his bakery earlier. Just great. Ocean thought to himself. Let's just lay low until I get to Manehattan, then make a beeline to Central Park. Not wanting to be recognised, he pulled out a pair of sunglasses from his mane, and put them on in order to hide his eyes, and was extra careful not to speak, lest the stallion recognise his voice.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 01, 2015, 08:15:55 pm
Foxtrot nods, making sure he has nothing on him that can be used as a weapon. Once he's cleared he takes a deep breath and relaxes; emptying his mind of noise. "Alright Niv, I'm set to go. Do it."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 01, 2015, 10:55:32 pm
Nivalia nods, her horn glowing as she looks at Foxtrot right in his eyes. Her jade pupils glow, the unicorn's also changing in tint. A moment of silence passes until she begins to speak. "Foxtrot, can you hear me?" He nods, waiting for her to continue. "Good. How do you feel?"

"Not bad actually." Foxtrot answers, relaxing in his seat. "I guess you have been improving your technique. When do we get into the deep mind probing?"

Nivalia chuckles, "Soon, just getting you acclimated to the changes. When I go full power you may lose consciousness; if so then we've gotten you activated. Just keep your mind clear. Let's speak to Agent 04."

"Ok, just make sure I don't do anything rash." The unicorn replies.

"Alright, alright. Let's begin..." The changeling's horn glows even brighter as Foxtrot becomes still. His irises widen as his thoughts silence as well as the room around him. "Now, the only one you hear is me. Fox, there's someone else we need to meet, you know who. Let us meet him." Foxtrot cringes, putting a hoof to his head. After a time his breathing becomes heavy, his hoof drops to his side. "Hey, who are you?"

Foxtrot looks around, rather confused as if he never recognised those around him. "Agent... 04."

"Good. How do you feel? I know a sense of confusion may be present, but anything else? Fear, anger?" Nivalia asks. The unicorn readjusts himself and shakes his head. "I see, it would make sense that they would condition those feeling out. Do you know how to use your magic?"

Foxtrot nods, "Of course. Transition through the hooves, apply as needed. I'm currently field testing a few others."

Nivalia nods, "Alright, and you recall all of your assignments? What you did before and after?" The agent at first appears as if he's going to nod again before she adds o to it, "Not including debriefing and preparations." Foxtrot pauses, then shakes his head, looking rather uneasy. "Agent, do you know of any of us are? Have you met anyone named Foxtrot?"

"No I..." Foxtrot hesitates, realizing his own lack of perspective on the situation. "Don't know any of them. Just... my assignments. What's going on? I should've gotten my orders by now."

"Relax, that's your order." Nivalia replies, her breathing beginning to be heavy. "How many triggers are you aware of?"

"86." Foxtrot replies. "I was executing number 74 last time I saw you all. "

"Well I need you to forget them. All of them, can you do that?" The changeling asks. The unicorn nods scratching his head. "Good. Close your eyes and do that. Rest for a minute then let us know when you're done." Foxtrot lasts co on his seat and closes his eyes. Nivalia's horn ceases glowing as she catches her breath. "Ok, part one is complete."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 02, 2015, 12:04:29 am
As Nivalia works her magic, Broadshield intently watches the whole procedure, making sure to not disturb them as it may cause something to happen. it took all of Broadshield's willpower to not do or say anything, especially to Nivalia. He was well aware that this was probably the only way they could break the Phantom Initiative's grip on him, but he still didn't like how she was using changeling magic on him. He never liked changelings anyway, especially after that day. Pushing those thoughts to the back of his head, he realizes that Nivalia chose to take a break. "So what's part one exactly, and what are you going to do next?" he quietly asks Nivalia to be sure he doesn't disturb Fox
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 02, 2015, 07:45:40 am
Tinder stays silent as she watches this take place, her hoof still resting on her dagger. She nods when Broad asks the question,  wondering the same thing herself. She also looks at what's going on and wonders to herself if what Niv is doing would help recover lost memories as well.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 02, 2015, 11:24:05 pm
Nivalia takes a deep breath, "Part one was finding out what were dealing with. 86 triggers, damn... this Phantom Initiative must've been extensive; regardless, disabling them should allow him to fight the Directors without risk of being controlled." Foxtrot remains silent throughout, appearing as if he's in a deep slumber. "Agent 04 also knows how to harness his magic through his hoofs, another useful tool Fox would love to have but doesn't know how to do. For part two, I'm going to merge the two personas into one. Foxtrot has already gone through enough emotional trauma to remember his assignments, so I can't bring him back to consciousness again. That's why I'm starting with Agent 04; he already knows all of his assignments and is emotionally adapted to them; from there it's filling in the blanks he can't remember when he's deactivated. The end result is a whole personality, Foxtrot will finally remember everything; maybe not all at once, but eventually he will."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 02, 2015, 11:46:18 pm
"Done." Agent 04 says, his eyes opening once more. "Triggers are cleared, I don't recall any others. So, what are you all talking about? Who the hay is Foxtrot?"

Nivalia looks over to her brother and leans forward, "He's an amazing pony. Would you like to meet him?" Agent 04 pauses, looking over to the other for a moment before turning back to the changeling with a shrug. "Good, but first, I need you to try something." Foxtrot's guitar levitates over to him. "Try to play this real quick. Nothing fancy, just a simple tune." The unicorn looks at the instrument for a moment, then takes it with his magic. Bringing it to his hooves, he attempts to play a melody, but fails terribly. Nivalia's horn glows as she plucks it from his hooves, "Ok, just wanted to check. It appears skillsets are divided by personas as well. Now what I want you to do is lay back on your seat. Close your eyes, and take deep breaths; you're going to see memories that may not be familiar at first. Give it time, and soon everything will make sense."

The agent looks rather concerned, not used to this kind of interaction; still, he nods and does what he's told. Nivalia takes one more deep breath before fully concentrating. Here horn glows a bright green, illuminating the whole room as her eyes become bright green. Foxtrot's horn also glows green as his minds begins to play a mental slideshow of his life; memories of joyous and horrendous occasions fill his vision, causing him to lightly jerk his head away from time to time. Still, he remains steadfast as his two separate identities begin to meld. As more recent events are unfolded, the unicorn grits his teeth; the memories of Agent 04's assignments become known, the acts to complete them appear to be the worst than anything the unicorn has experienced before. Coupled with the events that ended his career in the guard, and the subsequent downward spiral afterward forces him to twitch and jerk to resist these new thoughts. Nivalia herself appears to become pushed to her limits as well, beads of sweat trickling down her face as she tries to remain in control. Suddenly, it all stops. Both participants fall in their seats, knocking their things onto the floor. The train whistle sounds off, a shudder of the train is felt before it begins to leave the station, on it's way to Manehattan.

Post by: Broadshield on November 03, 2015, 12:15:21 am
After Nivalia's response, Broadshield nods a few times to show that he understands. Upon Nivalia continuing, Broadshield watches intently and silently at the whole process. Eventually, Nivalia and Foxtrot both collapse, right as the train begins to move. Getting onto his hooves, he moves over to Nivalia, making sure he doesn't trip over anything. "Oh jeez, are you alright?" he asks Nivalia, unsure whether or not she is conscious.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 03, 2015, 01:12:33 pm
Tinder stands up as soon as she sees Fox collapse, she leaves her dagger on her seat and quickly moves over to him to try to see if he's okay. "Fox? You awake buddy?" She is very obviously worried about her friend as she stares at him and tries to figure out what she can do to help.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 03, 2015, 10:51:32 pm
Both Foxtrot and Nivalia barely move as they try to regain control of their thoughts; the unicorn simply decides to lie down on the bench and take deep breaths. Nivalia however, manages to sit up, "I- I'm fine. Just exhausted after that and what's happened so far." She looks over to Foxtrot, "Give him some time, it might take longer than the last time for him to sort things out in his head. I would keep an eye on him, see how he reacts when he starts regaining full consciousness. For now all we can really do is make sure he continues breathing and just enjoy the ride, it's quite a trip to Manehattan so for now we all can just rest."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 04, 2015, 03:21:32 pm
Tinder listens to Niv and nods, moving over to grab her dagger off her seat and lay it in her bag. "I'll keep a watch on him, to make sure he's okay." She goes back over and sits on the floor in front of Fox's seat, watching him and letting out a little yawn, "It's not like I'm gonna be able to sleep here anyway."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 04, 2015, 03:35:19 pm
Broadshield nods at Tinders comment before turning to Nivalia. "She's right, you two should rest, me and Tinder will keep watch." He says to Nivalia.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 04, 2015, 10:01:15 pm
Nivalia nods and takes a deep breath, "Thanks you two. I really appreciate all of the help. With what Fox has been through and..." her eyes trail off to the floor, "Who I am, I'm surprised we've gotten such support." She looks over to them, "Not to sound rude, but how did you two end up in this mess anyway? I know Ebony is a close friend of ours, but I've never met either of you before all this."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 04, 2015, 11:08:30 pm
Tinder looks back at Niv as she asks the question, "I ran into Fox in Ponyville when he was being chased down by a group. I let him sleep in my apartment for the night and kept watch to make sure no one was coming. In the morning I just went with him, not sure why, I guess I wanted to make sure her was safe and okay. He took me to the royal gardens that night, fell asleep there. He disappeared in the morning, and I got arrested." She chuckles a tiny bit, "And well, not sure what happened, but Ebony said I could help find Fox, so I did."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 04, 2015, 11:37:14 pm
"As for me, I was about to apprehend this blue dragon causing chaos in Canterlot. I was about to talk to him at this photo shoot when I got orders from Princess Luna I believe to assist Ebony with the operation. I'm not sure why she did though, from what I know and have experienced Ebony would have been fully capable to take on this mission himself. Probably the most viable reason as to why is because he knew about the civil war in Saddle Arabia, which I guess concerns us as Equinox. Anyway, that's how I got involved." He says
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 05, 2015, 08:44:34 pm
Nivalia looks over to Broadshield when he mentions the photo shoot. "Oh yea. I was there too; met that Dragon as well, what a character he was." She turns her attention to Tinder, a warm smile appearing on his face, "Well if he himself hasn't said it yet, thank you for sticking with him. Whenever I run into him we swap stories; he always runs into interesting situations and individuals during his adventures. Who knows, if I manage to keep him in one place for a while I can finally chronicle the whole dang thing." She yawns, "Alright, I'm going to get some shut eye. Hopefully my magic gets back to normal when I wake up." Stretching out, the changeling rests her bag below her head as a pillow and begins to doze off.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 05, 2015, 09:20:14 pm
Tinder smiles back at Niv, "It was no trouble, I was happy to stick with Fox, he needed my help so I gave it. And get some rest, you'll need it for later I'm sure." She chuckles under her breath as she sees Nivalia fall asleep and then wiggles around on the floor to get comfy, though she won't be sleeping this trip she figures she can still be comfortable. She watches Fox to make sure he's still breathing, glad to have some reason not to look at Broadshield.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 06, 2015, 06:48:43 am
Nodding at Nivalia's comment as well as briefly remembering seeing Nivalia at the photoshoot, Broadshield smiles to himself, how he got from confronting some wild dragon to being part of a mission to take down some organization in one day. "Get some rest Nivalia, we'll keep watch." he says to Nivalia when she falls asleep. After making sure both Fox and Nivalia were both asleep, he moves from his original position to right next to the door. After adjusting his position, Broadshield raises his voice so he can get Tinder's attention. "Hey Tinder, is it alright that we talk?" he asks. He's known that since he met Tinder, she was really nervous when around him, and he just wanted to talk to her to hopefully help her to not be nervous around him.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 06, 2015, 01:57:35 pm
Tinder quickly looks around as Broadshield talks to her, trying to find a way out of here. Realizing that he's next to her only exit she takes a deep breath and moves as far away as she can in the other direction, icing over her bag again with her magic just in case something happens, then no one can get into her bag without breaking the ice. She looks at him, trying to keep eye contact so she doesn't look too nervous, "Sure, I don't see why we wouldn't be able to talk."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 07, 2015, 07:37:01 am
Upon hearing Tinder's response, Broadshield continues with what he needs to say. "I know that you are always nervous around me, and I know about your... past," he says, referencing her past crimes, yet not noticing Tinder icing her bag. "And I think that's because I have a military history, and you think I may arrest you for what you have done in the past, am I right?" he asks.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 07, 2015, 10:57:56 am
Tinder looks visibly relieved as she realizes that he only knows about her past crimes and not her present ones. She continues to make the ice on her bag thicker though, to continue to keep those crimes hidden. She looks at him and nods, "Yeah,  that's why." A tinge of lying in her voice.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 07, 2015, 04:49:35 pm
Seeing Tinder relieved immediately sets suspicion inside Broadshield, as he hasn't said anything important. Quickly glancing down, he notices Tinders bag glistening. Not wanting to let Tinder know he knows something is up, Broadshield continues. "You see, Equinox is a strike force against international and ethereal threats to Equestria. It's not exactly within our jurisdiction to arrest someone for petty crime, whether their crimes were in the past," he visibly looks at Tinders bag "Or their present." he looks at Tinder again to make his point.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 07, 2015, 10:42:08 pm
Tinder stares at him for a second as she tries to figure out if theft and illegal drugs count as petty crimes. When she sees that he knows somethings up with her bag she automatically stops putting more ice on it. "I... I just don't want to leave Fox hanging if I get arrested."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 09, 2015, 12:25:38 am
"Wait, what do you mean? You don't want to leave Fox hanging if you get arrested?" he asks
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 09, 2015, 07:56:09 am
"I said I'd help him with this, if I get arrested then I can’t do that. I just don't want to risk it." Tinder glances at Fox and sighs.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 11, 2015, 09:03:42 pm
"So that's why you were so nervous around me?" he asks as he looks out the window at the passing landscape.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 11, 2015, 09:08:31 pm
Tinder nods slightly and looks over at Broadsheild, "Yeah, that's why. If I wasn't helping someone I wouldn't be nervous of you. If this was just a normal day and I had met you anywhere else I wouldn't care what you know. I wouldn't care if you knew every detail about my past or present, but right now I gotta help a friend so I can't get arrested."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 11, 2015, 09:11:35 pm
Broadshield looks at Tinder, taking a breath and sighing. "I see, if you weren't scared of me or someone else arresting you, you'd be fine?" he asks.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 11, 2015, 09:17:56 pm
"Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. If I didn't have to worry that I was gonna get dragged away from helping a friend by getting arrested, then I wouldn't be so nervous." Tinder looks away and back out the window to watch the scenery go by.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 11, 2015, 09:30:41 pm
Broadshield closes his eyes and sighs once again, probably going to regret what he's about to say. "Alright, when all of this is said and done, I'll be sure to do everything I can to clear you from all your past and present crimes, and give you a fresh start. All I ask for in return is that you do everything you can during this mission, and don't be nervous around me, ok?" he says.

Tinder looks back at him quickly, not really believing what he's saying at first, "You'll wipe my slate clean? I won't have to worry about what I did back then, only what I do now? Are you being serious right now, because this seems like something that you wouldn't offer me if you had looked at my past." She takes a breath and smiles, "Hey, to get that slate wiped clean I'll do that best that I can do, I mean I was gonna do that anyway but this is an extra bonus now."

Post by: Broadshield on November 11, 2015, 10:01:08 pm
"Of course I'm being serious, I'm not one to lie to be honest." he chuckles. "Try and get some rest, It'll be a few hours until we get to Manehatten." he says
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 11, 2015, 10:23:05 pm
Tinder nods and lays down on the floor, moving around a bit to get comfy, "Thanks. I'll try to get some rest." She then closes her eyes and tries her best to fall asleep, a bit worried that if she does fall asleep she'll wake everyone around her with one of her nightmares in a bit.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 11, 2015, 11:30:07 pm
Watching Tinder fall asleep, Broadshield then turns his head toward the window, watching the scenery pass by, waiting to either get to Manehatten or for someone else to wake up.

(Don't know where Fox wants to go with this, either have someone wake up and they'll talk, or fast forward to Manehatten. I'll let Fox decide.)

Ocean listened into Broad and Tinder's conversation, and upon hearing Broad's offer, let out a slight gasp. A clean slate... Ocean thought to himself. That could be very useful. I could visit my parents without fear of arrest. Although the townsfolk would probably still shun me... Ocean slipped quitly back to his seat. I'll keep an eye on them for now, see if there's a way I can get this for myself.

Several hours pass as the train nears its destination. After constant rolling and thrashing around in his sleep, as well as muttering nonsense, Foxtrot wakes up. "Hmm, huh?" He looks over to find Broadshield still awake. "Hey, how's it going?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 12, 2015, 05:14:06 pm
Tinder sleeps on the floor right next to Foxtrots seat, if he were to try to stand he'd end up stepping on her if he didn't notice her there. But it's pretty difficult not to notice her there, twisting and turning in her sleep, mumbling loudly in between tiny snores. As she sleeps her horn occasionally sparks and lights for a second, the space around her getting colder or warmer as it does, it's  not too big of a change but it is definitely noticeable. Maybe this is why she never feels rested when she wakes up.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 13, 2015, 02:56:57 am
After several hours, Broadshield begins to fall asleep, it has been a busy few days and he hasn't gotten much sleep. Before dozing off, he notices Foxtrot wakes up. "Hey Fox, how was your sleep?" He asks, thinking nothing of it.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 13, 2015, 12:27:30 pm
Foxtrot gets up, looking over to make sure he doesn't interrupt Tinder's rest. "I'm alright Broadshield, thanks. Had a lot of weird dreams; I'm guessing my memories are still sorting themselves out." Making sure he puts his things away he approaches the door, "I'm going to use the restroom. Probably stretch my legs a bit and get some fresh air. Why not get some rest? You look like you could use a few Zs." The unicorn opens the door and steps through into the hallway. "I'll be back in a bit." Closing the door he begins to make his way to the caboose of the train.

Foxtrot exits the last section of the train, and climbs outside to sit on the roof. Taking a deep breath he looks up at the early morning sky, stars dotting the deep blue abyss of the night. After a few minutes in silence, he hears a set of hoofsteps, and looks over his shoulder to see who it is. Spotting a pegasus wearing glasses he turns back to observing the sky. "I should've expected you would take this trip. Still making sure I don't bail on our deal?"

"That, and because I have to go there eventually." Samiel says as he approaches the unicorn and sits next to him. "I see you have a plan of attack."

"Kind of." Foxtrot replies. "I gotta make sure everything goes as planned. And knowing me, things won't go as planned at all." He glances over to Samiel, "Wanna join in? We could use all the help we can get."

Samiel pauses for a moment before answering, "I'll consider it. To be honest I'm surprised your asking at all. I read the papers you gave me; what The 26 has done, how they used us for their gain, even what happened after Calais. Foxtrot, I'm assuming you read everything as well. Are you aware of..." He trails off, not knowing how to really conclude the sentence.

"You sent people to kill me." The unicorn blatantly answers. "They scouted my unit, led us to a changeling hive, and got everyone except me killed." He takes a deep breath as he remembers those events, "I wasn't killed, but I certainly lost a life. All my soldiers, my friends, all dead. I lost my magic, my sanity, my job... everything. I almost finished myself off; you almost succeeded Samiel, almost."

Samiel's wings flutter as he hears the outcome of his orders, "I see things haven't gone well for you either. So why aren't you striking me down right now? After all I've done to you?"

Foxtrot looks over to the pegasus, "Because I'm not any better. I was a tool for war; flooded an entire village, killed so many innocents just to finish the job. The universe works in mysterious ways, but there is always a balance; an equal and opposite reaction to what we do. Sam, I'm tired of killing, of war, of senseless bloodshed. Oddly enough I recently discovered how proficient I am at it. The 26 uses this to make a profit, and because of it, they will be brought to justice. As for you... As far as I'm concerned, were even. We're both just two ponies doing what we thought was the right thing, when in reality we were being played. We actually destroyed each other's lives without ever meeting face to face. So now it's up to you, where do you think we stand in all of this?"

Samiel looks up at the starry sky as a moment of silence surrounds them, the wind being the only noise in their ears. "I still want you dead Foxtrot; although not as much as before, and not enough to follow through with it. I assumed you were dead for a time, I meditated for a while and moved on. I have bigger things in the works that require my full attention."

Foxtrot chuckles, "Oh yeah, that telescope thing. How's it going along?"

"How did..." Samiel cuts himself off, the answer already popping up in his head. After adjusting his glasses the pegasus gets up and begins walking back to the entrance. "Nevermind. Although I may not join you, Agent 04, I do wish you luck; you all need it."

Foxtrot looks back up at the sky for a little longer, memories both old and new still playing across his vision. Without a word, the unicorn gets back up, and returns to the booth to meet back with the others.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 13, 2015, 03:10:43 pm
Watching Foxtrot leave, Broadshield lies down on the seat closing his eyes, but making sure he doesn't fall asleep, he still wants to discuss a few things with Fox before they get to Manehatten.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 13, 2015, 04:21:07 pm
Tinder's sleep isn't bothered by Fox stepping over her to get out. But she may be bothering anyone in or around the booth when a little bit after Fox leaves, she mumbles quite loudly in her sleep before her horn sparks again. Unlike the tiny temperature changes that this had been causing before, this one is quite a large and very sudden temperature change. Causing it to become ridiculously cold in and around their booth, and stays on this freezing temperature as her horn keeps sparking and her magic keeps the temperature this cold.

Post by: Nivalia on November 13, 2015, 08:13:07 pm
The severe change in temperature causes Nivalia to stir, eventually waking up the mare. Instead of waking the unicorn, she simply levitates the overhead compartment across from her. Several blankets come out, one floating to Broadshield, herself, and opening up to wrap around Tinder. "Tinder, are you alright?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 13, 2015, 09:40:17 pm
Ocean had fallen asleep not soon after returning to his seat. However, as the room started to get colder, he stirred, and fell off the chair with a thud. "AGH!" Ocean exclaimed as he jumped dip to check his surroundings. Content that nobody was attacking him, he snuck over to where Tinder, Broad and Nivalia were seated. Ocean let out a barely audible gasp when he realised it was Tinder's magic causing the temperature change. Ice magic...incredible. Ocean thought. I wonder if his magic is of the same vein as pyro magic.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 14, 2015, 01:28:05 pm
Tinder wakes up with a yelp as the blanket is placed on her, quickly flailing and moving around to try to get whatever it is that is touching her off. When she manages to remove the blanket she stares at it for a second, realizing that she just freaked out for no reason at all. She then glances at Nivalia and Broadshield, noticing  the blankets on them, it takes her a second more to realize the temperature and that it's her causing it. As quick as she can she stops the spell that's making it cold, "Sorry... was dreaming I guess."

Post by: Foxtrot on November 15, 2015, 12:31:48 pm
As Foxtrot returns to the booth, he notices somebody paying a lot of attention to where the others are. With his expression neutral, he silently walk up the lane, not a sound eminating from him.switching range he places his hoof on Ocean Spray's shoulder, "Excuse me, are you alright?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 15, 2015, 02:36:11 pm
Ocean slowly turned to Foxtrot, and quickly came up with a reasonable explanation. "I...um...was just looking for a blanket, because the temperature dropped so suddenly, when I saw one of the ponies in there using ice magic in their sleep." Ocean got up and started to walk back to his seat. "I'll just be headed back to my seat now..."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 15, 2015, 04:16:30 pm
Getting up, Broadshield walk over to Foxtrot. "Hey Fox, you mind if we talk?" He asks.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 15, 2015, 04:45:08 pm
Tinder sighs a bit, feeling quite embarrassed about making the train so cold and about panicking over a blanket touching her. She lays back down on the floor and moves in so that part of her is under the seat, staring forward at nothing in particular really. Just trying to distract herself from the fool she made of herself. Since sleep is no longer an option for her she decides to take up the time and make some tiny ice sculptures while she waits, making one of Nivalia first since she's right there and it's easier to make a sculpture when there is a model for it.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 15, 2015, 09:58:05 pm
"Sure Broadshield, one moment please." Foxtrot replies, looking over to Nivalia. "Niv, blanket."

"Can you send them in?" Nivalia's voice is heard. The changeling becomes too distracted by the sculpture. "We're making art."

Foxtrot rolls his eyes before looking over to Ocean Spray, "Hey buddy, hold up. We got some extra if you want one. Head over to the booth and my sis will give you a blanket." With that addressed, he returns his attention back to Broadshield, "So, what's up?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 15, 2015, 11:33:01 pm
Ocean slowly went into the booth, trying not to interrupt anything important. Or get himself recognised by Broadshield. "Hey, um, you said you have a spare blanket?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 15, 2015, 11:53:00 pm
"Take my blanket if you can't find one." He says to Ocean. Glimpsing at him, he feels a strange feeling of Déjà Vu, as if he has seen him before. Deciding to think about it later, he turns to Foxtrot. "I have a plan for Manehatten, and it involves the Equinox Manehatten Division. I feel it's appropriate to tell the others but I'm not sure about the new guy. What do you think?" He asks.

(Thinking of adding a few NPCs for the arc, as well as Monochrome/Pastel. I'll kill the NPCs off before the end. Whether or not Fox wants to go ahead with this is his decision. If it does go through, I'll explain in RP)
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 16, 2015, 07:46:51 am
Tinder glances over at Ocean when he enters and nods, "Sorry about making this place so cold, you can use my blanket since I don't need it." She levitates the blanket over to him and smiles, "Sorry again." She then looks back at her ice sculpture of Niv and continues working on it.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 16, 2015, 03:10:08 pm
Foxtrot nods as Broadshield explains his plan. "Sounds like a good idea, we could use all the backup we can get. As for him..." The unicorn glances over to Ocean Spray, "I wouldn't worry about it. He'll either want to help, have no clue what we're talking about, or will be weirded out and leave. Either outcome is alright."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 16, 2015, 11:22:02 pm
Ocean puts the blanket under his wing. "Thanks man." Ocean went to turn and walk off, but remembered his internal questioning from earlier. "So, um, ice magic. Is your's similar to fire magic, and if so, can you do any? Fire magic, I mean."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 17, 2015, 08:12:33 am
Tinder looks up from her sculpture, a almost pained expression crossing her face for a second before she nods. "Yeah, it's the same line of magic and yes, I can technically do it. But I'd really rather not do it because I'm not a fan of passing out from spells taking all my energy, not a fan of fire either to he honest." She looks back at the ice and starts working on the little details to distract herself.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 17, 2015, 11:00:50 pm
Sensing some of Tinder's discomfort, Nivalia shifts the attention to the new arrival. "So, what's a stallion like yourself doing on a midnight train ride to Manehattan? Oh, speaking of which, my name's Nivalia; that's Tinder. Over there is officer Broadshield and my brother Foxtrot. What's your name?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 18, 2015, 04:55:22 am
"Oh, um, the names Ocean. Ocean Spray. It's nice to meet you all." Some of you for the second time... Ocean thought to himself. "I'm actually on my way to pick up a, um, magical artifact." Ocean said, hoping the story would pass. Let's just try and avoid the whole Shifter topic, eh Ocean? If they start asking questions, I'll try to shut down the conversation. It's a shame too, because they all seem like nice ponies. Ocean thought as he scanned the four ponies in the booth with him.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 19, 2015, 04:06:01 am
Broadshield continues to look at Ocean, feeling as though he has seen him somewhere before. Something about him seems very familiar. "I'm sorry, but have I met you somewhere before? I feel as though I have seen you before." he says, still not sure who he is.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Ocean Spray on November 19, 2015, 04:00:52 pm
Crap. Ocean thought to himself. He noticed... "Um, I don't think so. Canterlot is a big place though, so you might have, um, seen me in passing on the street?" Ocean said with a shakey voice. Let's just hope that was convincing enough.

Tinder finishes her little six inch tall ice sculpture of Nivalia and levitates it over to her, laying it down next to Niv on her seat. Tinder looks around at everyone in the booth to pick her next model, she decides Broad would be the easiest to sculpt so she starts sculpting him next.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Nivalia on November 20, 2015, 10:47:56 pm
Nivalia smiles as she looks over her sculpture, "Oh thank you Tinder, it looks wonderful!" She looks over to Foxtrot as he returns to his seat, "Yo bro, check it out." The sculpture levitates over to him so he can get a better view. "As lovely as the real thing."

Post by: Foxtrot on November 20, 2015, 10:49:18 pm
"Wow that's awesome." Foxtrot replies. "I like the attention to detail. Speaking of which..." He looks over to the group, as well as the newcomer. "Alright everyone, train's gonna be at the station in a couple of hours. From there we make a beeline to Equinox headquarters and gear up. Knowing the Directors, they'll have their meeting around 2pm today. That'll give us more than enough time to formulate a detailed raid on their building. They will more than likely be on the upper levels, if not at the top of the complex." He finally looks over to Broadshield, "You'll be the first off the train, gotta lead us right to your HQ. For now, everyone rest up, and get your things ready." The unicorn glances over to the new arrival, "Look guy, none of what's going on here is your business. However we need help, so if you want to make it your business, stick around; we'd certainly appreciate it. If not, then you're gonna have to leave. We'll fill you in on the details if need be."

Post by: Ocean Spray on November 21, 2015, 01:03:02 am
"I think I'll...just be headed off now. I've got a lot on my plate right now. Sorry for bothering you all." Ocean went to leave, but stopped. "Oh, and thanks for the blanket." Ocean left them, going back to where he was sitting. As he walked, he thought to himself. The braclet can wait. If this Broadshield fella is from Equinox, then it could be my answer to the whole 'can't go back to Ponyville on the fear of arrest' problem. And probably the one in Fillydelphia too... It's settled. I'll follow them from a distance, as Metal for as much as I can.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 21, 2015, 01:10:26 am
Deciding to think about Ocean for later, he turns to the rest of the group. "We'll have time to formulate a more detailed plan at HQ, as well as get suited up. I'm not letting anyone here continue this weapon without any sort of defense. Just so you guys know, we'll be heading towards the southern docks, but I can't say much more than that." he says, wanting to give them a basic idea of where they're going.

Post by: Tinder on November 21, 2015, 07:33:02 am
Tinder continues working on the statue of Broad as they plan things around her, giving a quick nod occasionally to confirm that she's still listening. She has nothing to add though, all the plans she makes are for stealing painting and stuff like that, she doesn't know how to take down a whole agency.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on November 21, 2015, 03:16:18 pm
The remainder of the ride goes without incident, the group able to relax and prepare for the mission ahead. With a sounding of the horn the train arrives at the station at approximately 8am. The Sun itself is still climbing into the sky, but the city that never sleeps is still bustling with activity. The station is emptier than usual, but there's enough ponies going about to create some ambient background noise. Foxtrot and Nivalia get up and gather their things. "Alright everyone, let's head out. Broadshield, you take point."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 22, 2015, 05:56:15 am
Upon arriving at the station, Broadshield gathers all of his things. Making sure that everyone is fully packed, he steps outside onto the platform, with the others hopefully close behind "Alright, we're headed to the South Manehatten Shipping Docks. We don't have time to waste so lets move!" With that said, he leads the group through the busy crowds throughout the maze-like streets of Manehatten to their destination. Eventually, the group would find themselves at the docks, with some ponies hard at work, not knowing or caring about the group.

(I don't even know. LET US CONTINUE!)
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 22, 2015, 01:34:31 pm
Tinder manages to make little ice sculptures of everyone in the booth before they get there, placing them next to their models when done. When the train finally stops she's quite glad to be out of this place, she follows after them all, staying a bit behind to take a few pills before speeding up to be with them.

Post by: Ocean Spray on November 22, 2015, 04:59:43 pm
When the train arrived in Manehattan, Ocean got off the train and followed the group towards the docks from a distance. When they arrived, Ocean quickly ducked behind a shipping container to shift. I've only got about an hour in this form, so I better make the most of it. Ocean thought to himself as he shifted from Ocean Spray into Metal Burst, pulling out a pair of sunglasses out of his mane.

Foxtrot and Nivalia stay close with the others as they traverse the streets. Although they're on a serious assignment, the two couldn't help but be amazed at the sights and sounds of the city, along with the aromas of the many foods that surround them. When they get to the docks the unicorn looks around, "Ok, so where is this place exactly?"
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 23, 2015, 01:25:00 am
"This is the South Manehatten Shipping Docks. This place serves as mainly for imports and exports of materials and items to various places in and out of Equestria, one being Saddle Arabia. But it also serves as the Equinox Manehatten Division's Forward Operating Base. From here on out, I want everyone to stay behind me, and let me do all the talking. Get all of your stuff ready, we'll head off in a minute." He says, before surveying the area, feeling as though they are being followed.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 23, 2015, 07:11:39 am
Tinder looks around as they walk, not is amazement but more in remembrance. Seeing the place where she grew up again is a weird feeling for her, especially since the only times she usually visits here usually ends with hallucinations and tears.

Tinder stays a bit behind all of them, glad to hear that Broad is going to do all the talking. She certainly would have nothing to say in there, so it's a weight off her back.

Okay, that was too close. Metal thought to himself, after having to throw himself to the ground to avoid being seen by Broadshield. But, the rumors are true! That's why the black market is on the other side of town...because they wanted it to be as far away from Equinox HQ as possible. Metal continued to snake his way behind the group, ducking behind cover every time someone looked around.

Post by: Foxtrot on November 23, 2015, 09:47:16 pm
Foxtrot and Nivalia scan the docks as they approach, the smell of the sea air surrounding them in nostalgia. "Wow, the docks. Surprisingly been to only a few in my time. Alright Broadshield, lead the way and we'll let you do the talking."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on November 24, 2015, 09:02:39 pm
Seeing everyone ready, Broadshield makes his way down a flight of stairs onto the actual docks. Broadshield navigates through the docks, which have turned into a maze with all the shipping containers. Occasionally, the group would pass by one or two workers, who would either not notice them, or they wouldn't care. After some navigating, the group would eventually come out into an opening. In the opening, there is a tunnel that goes through the side of the wall, all dark. Inside it, a flow of water is also present, making its way out to the ocean. There were also a group of ponies, who at first glance look like a bunch of thugs, all of whom were playing card games. Upon the group showing up, the group notices them. One of them makes their way towards the group. "Oi, you lot! What're you doing here?" he calls out to them.

(Will wait for others to post before continuing)

Metal watched from behind a container at the scene unfolding before him. I wonder...are these guys Equinox agents, or... Metal thought back to his last visit to Manehattan, where he had been bashed by a group similar to this one, just because of the 'reputation' shifters had acquired over the years.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on November 25, 2015, 04:23:15 pm
Tinder looks at the thugs, sizing them up to try to figure out if she would be able to take them down or not. Though she knows that these ponies are probably part of the same group Broad is a part of, she still can't help but wonder if maybe she knew them when she was young, this being so close to where she grew up. She stares at them as she tries to see if she recognizes them, but doesn't speak a word, knowing that she should keep her mouth shut.

Post by: Nivalia on November 25, 2015, 06:52:31 pm
Nivalia looks around the area, her and Foxtrot's expression neutral towards the ponies addressing them. This wasn't the first situation they've been in and certainly wouldn't be the last. Both simply remain calm and wait for Boradshield to speak.

Post by: Broadshield on November 25, 2015, 09:42:55 pm
Looking at the gang in front of them through his hood, "My group just wants to go through the tunnels, that's all." He says to the leader of the gang. 'Oh Saur you paranoid...' He mutters under his breath, barely audible.
"I don't know if ya'll can tell, but this place ain't exactly open to the public. Boss' orders." the pony replies.
"Who told you to guard this place?" Broad asks.
"Why does it matter to you? You lookin' for him?" He asks, getting aggregated.
"What if I am? What will you do about it." He responds, growing tired of having to do this.
"Are you lookin' for a fight? I'll fight you!" He calls out, challenging Broad.
"Fine, I'll make this quick." He says to both groups. At that moment, the gang leader pulls out a knife and charges Broadshield. Stepping to the side, he quickly disarms the pony and throws the knife off to the side, while also pushing the pony off. Going into the offensive, he throws a punch at Broadshield, to which he grabs the arm, and proceeds to throw him to the ground. When all is said and done, he removes his hood, revealing himself to the gang. At that moment, all the gang ponies except the leader salute him and the group, the latter too dazed to realize who he just fought. After getting up and saluting Broadshield, he begins to speak. "I'm sorry Commander, I didn't realise it was you. If I did know I would have let you in.
"That's alright soldier, did Saur put this group out on guard?" He asks.
"Yes sir, since there have been a bunch of ponies around the area, Saur wanted to put a guard outside to scare ponies off." He responds
"Alright, thank you soldier. Just so you know, I have a feeling that somepony has been following us. Keep a look out, and make sure nopony gets through."
"Yessir!" He says as the group salutes him. Making his was back to the group he says, "Alright, let's head in and follow me. Watch your step as it can get dark in there."

Ocean shifted back as the group entered the complex. "Well ****. Armed guards." Ocean muttered under his breath. "This isn't worth the risk. I'll hang out here for now, wait until they exit, then follow from there. That is, if they even use his exit." Ocean flew up onto a nearby shipping container, and settled in to stake out the doorway, looking for any signs of movement from the guards.

Post by: Tinder on November 26, 2015, 03:19:08 pm
Tinder watches Broadshield fight, a smirk appearing on her face. She's honestly impressed with his fighting skills, and seeing him fight like this gives her a little bit of respect for him, she respects a pony more when they can hold their own in a fight. Tinder gives one final look around, securing her bag around her, and then follows after Broad into the tunnel.

The unicorn and changeling stand back and let the scene play out. It's conclusion was expected, and knowing that they're in the right place provides comfort for the two as they follow Broadshield into the tunnel.

Leading the group through the dark tunnels, the group eventually comes across a large door. At the door are two guards, who silently salute the group. "Alright guys, through this door is the Equinox Manehatten Division Base. From here follow me into the meeting room, we'll formulate a plan there, but feel free to look around for a little bit when we go inside." he says to the group. Opening the door reveals a large warehouse like area, shipping containers stacked up to their level, or being stacked by shipping cranes (They're looking down at the warehouse). On the far side is a very large sliding door, capable of moving dozens of containers in or out at once. Alongside that, series of rooms are built into the walls, housing further storage, food and water supplies, armories meeting rooms and more. Throughout the place, Equinox soldiers are moving around, moving containers, constructing and repairing various things, as well as going off on missions as well as returning.

Tinder looks at the sights around her in awe, there is so much stuff in here. Though her temptation to go swipe a few things is quite high right now, she decides that the risk is much to high with all these guard types around. Plus, Broad promised her a clean slate if she did her best, and she feels like that offer would be taken off the table if she tried to steal from his group. She just sticks close to the group, avoiding eye contact with any of the Equinox members around her.

Nivalia looks around with amazement, it being a rare occurrence of seeing logistical operations in this scale. She taps her brothers shoulder to turn his attention to something interesting. "Wow Fox, it's been ages since we've seen that."

The unicorn smiles, "It has. I gotta say this is a great setup; I appreciate the support for all this Broadshield."

"No problem you guys. We're always willing to help, especially when we know what the stakes are." He says to Foxtrot. "Just follow me downstairs. We'll make our way into the meeting room, then we'll formulate a plan against the group." he says, leading the group downstairs. After making his way downstairs, he leads the group to a meeting room. On the way, any Equinox guards that aren't doing anything really important come up and salute Broadshield and the group, occasionally welcoming the group to the base. Upon reaching the room, he opens the door for the rest of the group. Inside is a large room, which contains a large table made of crystal, capable of using light and memory spells to create holographic projections. Surrounding the table are various chairs, roughly 12 in total. On the wall is a map of Manehatten, with various notes next to circled locations, reading different notes, such as criminal hot spots, patrol routes, suspicious activity, and in the center of the map is a large park that is circled, with a note next to it saying 'Suspected black market location'. "Just get comfortable, I'll try and find some soldiers willing to help out on this op. I'll be right back. Pastel, Monochrome? Where are you?" he calls out as he leaves the room.

Tinder completely avoids eye contact with any of the guards that come to greet them, just giving quick nods in their direction while staring at the floor. Once they get into the room she seems to relax a little bit, glad to have a break from the mass amounts of guards. She looks at everything in the room, but her attention is quickly drawn to the map of Manehatten. She stares at it as she finds two spots on the map, the first one being her old home and the alley the used to live in, an area known for it's criminal activity. The other thing she looks for on the map is where the old playground near her home would be, sniffling a little as she finds where it would be on the map. She rubs at her eyes as she stares at the map, quickly grabbing her pill bottle from her bag and taking a couple. She then walks to the other side of the room and sits on the floor, trying her best to ignore the memories that are popping up in her mind.

Foxtrot and Nivalia look around as they settle in, sitting in one of the 12 chairs on the table. The unicorn remains silent, his eyes fixed on a single point on the map, one surprisingly not marked off or noted for any reason. Looking around the room he tales a deep breath as he tries to formulate a plan to take down the Directors. It's odd, going after the ones that trained him, supplied his gear, signed his paycheck. The difficulty is increased knowing that they need to be taken alive, an obstacle he knows they will take advantage of. The apprehension process must be quick, their imprisonment immediate. The concepts causes his scarred ear to flutter, getting the attention of the disguised changeling next to him. He looks over to see some of her concern in her expression, but also fatigue; she's been through enough already trying to break the programming his mind has gone through. Magically and mentally she may not even be in the right shape to come along, although she would disagree of course. Foxtrot gives her a warm smile before turning to the table in front of them; 5 targets, possible security, expected collateral damage. The real question is how much can be contained when it's all said and done. And when it is done, that's a whole matter entirely. The 26 would... No, will get disbanded after this with no formal leadership. At this point though it wouldn't even be necessary, the exact numbers of this small group is still unknown. More than likely all assets will be cut loose, all resources split evenly, and all contacts with outside suppliers eliminated. This won't be an easy task, and it sure as hell won't be easy after its all said and done.

Monochrome walked out from his office and straight into Broadshield. Straightening himself, he gave a salute, before returning to a relaxed stance. "Oh hey sir your back! How did the visit go? Did you see the princesses? Was there any good food? And why are there numerous unidentified civilians in the meeting room that Pastel keeps reorganising?" Monochrome said at lightning speed. "Oh, and I got that note you asked for. Pretty interesting how we've missed it for so long, eh sir!"

Broadshield calmly and patiently waits for Monochrome to finish what he needs to say, which didn't take very long. "Thank you for asking Monochrome. It has been a while. Remind me again what note I asked for, its been a long day." he says.

Tinder gets up and quickly moves into the corner of the room, laying down there to try to relax for a bit before more guards enter the room. She sighs a bit and covers her head with her hooves, trying to ignore the memories, trying to keep herself composed.

"Right, right, of course. If I remember correctly, an entrance to the Black Market was somewhere in the Central Park, and its warehouse was located on the East Docks. Thank you for checking. I wanted you to help us on this operation. The civilian Foxtrot and I will help explain everything to you. Go to the meeting room, I'll meet you there. I just need to find a few more soldiers to help us." he says.

Nivalia let's out a yawn and fold her hooves over the table; despite the rest she's had her eyelids still remain heavy. Looking over to Foxtrot she finds him with the same deep thought expression on his face. The burrowing of his brows, the fluttering of his ear; if it's an idea, she knows it's gonna be good. Her gaze wanders to the map, the things she's seen Foxtrot do while sifting through his mind was overwhelming. The indoctrination, the testing, everything seemed hard to believe; especially from The 26. Another yawn escapes her before a hoof on her shoulder jolts her awake. Glancing over the changeling finds her sibling looking over with a concerned look as well. He knows how drained she is, and she knows just how dangerous the next few hours may become. Her hoof falls onto his as she smiles and nods, a silent confirmation of his unspoken request. Despite the worry she herself has, sitting this one out would be the best course to take. With the exchange with Foxtrot over, Nivalia simply waits for the others to arrive.

Tinder lifts one of her hooves slightly to look out to see who just entered, seeing that it was a guard she didn't know she quickly covers her head with her hooves once again. She curls up a bit to try to get as far into the corner as she could, waiting for the one guard here that she trusts to come back into the room. Taking this time of silence to attempt to get the memories that are drifting through her mind to settle down, but being in Manehatten again has kind of rattled her a bit it seems.

Post by: Broadshield on December 02, 2015, 11:31:40 pm
After a few minutes has past, Broadshield enters the meeting room with three other Equinox soldiers, all of whom sit down in seats, casually eyeing the civilians. Noticing Tinder, Broadshield makes his way over to her. "Hey Tinder, you alright?" he asks. Ever since they got to Manehatten, he's noticed that Tinder hasn't been doing alright. Wanting to make sure she's fine before the whole mission starts, he decides to stay next to her until she's calmed down.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on December 03, 2015, 07:01:56 am
Tinder lifts her hooves to look at Broadshield as he talks to her, she nods a tiny bit and wipes at her eyes to remove the litte bit of tear that had formed, "I'm fine. My head is just a bit muddled right now, I'm not used to being home. I'll be fine on the mission, I promise."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on December 03, 2015, 07:39:06 am
Seeing Tinder alright, brought relief to Broadshield, seeing how his friend was alright. "Thats good to hear, I'm pretty sure it must be hard to come back here. Just take a few deep breaths and when you're ready, come take a seat. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to let me know." he says, before getting up and taking a seat near Tinder. "Alright, now that we're all here, we're going to need a plan to take down the 26. Fox, I'll leave it to you to explain the situation and the plan." he says.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on December 03, 2015, 10:13:59 pm
With everyone ready, Foxtrot nods and takes a deep breath as he prepares to inform the group. "Alright, as you all know, we're here to apprehend the Directors of The 26 for their involvement in creating a civil conflict in Saddle Arabia. There are five of them: Zulu, Romeo, Juliet, Bravo, and Yankee. All are very experienced field agents and skilled combatants in their craft. They will be having their quarterly meeting to discuss financials for the next few months." The unicorn gets up and walks over to the map if the city. With his hoof he points to a building sitting along a small bay leading to the sea. "As always they go to The Four Elements business complex. A 100 story skyscraper overlooking the scenic waterfront; and as always they will be having the meeting on the top floor suite." Foxtrot returns to the table, his tone becoming more stern, "I won't lie, I expect a fight, so our first priority is reducing unnecessary casualties. Second is to locate and isolate the Directors, apprehend them, and put them in a cell as fast as possible. They may have additional security, so speed is of the essence; we will need to employ more creative measures for their arrest. Broadshield, I'm guessing a place this large has holding cells, as well as at least five cuffs for these guys. What I'm thinking is enchanting the cuffs with instant, one way teleportation. Slap them on a Director and they immediately pop into a vacant cell. But like I said, reducing casualties takes priority. I'll need to have Equinox sweep the building to evacuate all civilians and form a 100 meter perimeter around the building. From there we head up the elevators to the top, apprehend them, and send then right to their cell." Foxtrot pauses and looks at the table as his ears fold back. "This will he easier said than done, more than likely they will resist and attack. Be prepared to defend yourselves and those around you..." The unicorn takes a deep breath and looks up, "I can't promise that we'll all make it out alive. But if we stay focused, alert, and have each other's back, we sure as hell have a good shot. Any questions?"

Post by: Tinder on December 03, 2015, 10:38:34 pm
Tinder calms down a bit as Foxtrot is talking, finally getting composed enough to go sit with everyone. She sits down in the seat next to Broadshield and listens intently to Fox's plan, nodding slightly every now and then, trying to take it all in and actually remember it. When asked if there is any questions she just shakes her head, not having any questions for him about this, she gets it as much as she can.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Agents Pastel and Monochrome on December 04, 2015, 07:39:21 am
Monochrome puts his hoof up. "Actually, yeah one question. What if there's a secret escape route out of the building? Or a dragon? Or a secret escape route guarded by a dragon?" Pulling his hoof down, he pondered for a moment. "Wait. No. Top floor. Not many ways to do a secret exit from that height... Unless they have some advanced illusion magic, that is. Or a portal. Are any of them capable unicorns? Because if so an anti-magic barrier might be needed. Which would mess with the handcuffs... dammit why is nothing ever simple. Ah well I'm sure we'll figure it out."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on December 04, 2015, 07:44:52 am
Broadshield listens closely to the plan, making sure he doesn't miss anything. After Foxtrot finishes explaining the plan, Broadshield begins talking. "A few things to discuss. Firstly, arresting the Directors. Although this place is big, we don't really have any holding cells per say, usually when something like this happens we hold them in the interrogation room, and we got a few of those. That's the best I can really do, besides ramping up security in those areas and around the base. I honestly wouldn't know how to magically alter something so that it teleports a pony, unless you know how to do it. On the topic of evacuating civilians from the building, I can get a good portion of the entire division to sweep the building and hold the perimeter easy enough. The only problem I see is doing all of that without the Directors, or their security noticing. To evacuate that many ponies would require something big, and I doubt we can pull it off without somepony noticing. Did you have any suggestions on how we can go around this issue?" he asks.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on December 05, 2015, 06:10:40 pm
Foxtrot takes a deep breath as he contemplates the current obstacles. "Alright, the interrogation rooms should suffice with enough security attached to them." He looks over to Nivalia, the mare already appearing drained from the day, "Niv, can you do that kind of spell if you're shown where these rooms are?" The changeling nods, a sense of determination in her eyes. "Ok that sits that out. If anything we may need some extras just in case. As for the evacuation..." He pauses, looking over to the map once more. Getting up, Foxtrot paces back and fourth for some time before finally stopping. "We do have the element of surprise on our side. They normally have security covering the top 5 floors; everything below that is just general business companies they have no association with. Heck, knowing them they got their heads shoved so far up their asses they won't even notice as long as it doesn't interrupt them. Still, just one tip and they'll vanish in an instant... Damn it..." With a frustrated sigh he continues pacing again, weighing the options and risks at hoof. "We'll have to strike first; catch them off guard as the building becomes evacuated. If things go as planned, there won't be any casualties and they'll be apprehended immediately. I know there are variables in all of this but unfortunately we don't have the time to cover them all."

Post by: Tinder on December 05, 2015, 06:32:02 pm
Tinder nods along as he talks, not having anything to add to the plan. Though she's made plenty of plans involving breaking and entering in the past, none of them have risked anyone's life other then her own. She's afraid to add any of her ideas to the plan, in case one of her ideas gets someone killed. Just figuring that she'll help as much as she can when they actually start doing the job at hand.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on December 06, 2015, 04:24:35 am
Broadshield continues to listen to Foxtrot while he's explaining parts of the plan, while at the same time he's forming a plan in his head. "I'll get all of the security team on high alert during the op, guarding the cells, as well as the base in case of retaliation. I'll also show you two where the interrogation rooms are." he says, remembering that the group of ponies that they met earlier were also part of the security team. "With the evacuation and the strike, are you suggesting that we do a coordinated strike? I mean, our team of 8 move in for the Directors while at the same time Equinox evacuates the building and surrounding buildings as well as establishing a perimeter?" he asks, thinking about how many ponies from each unit they'll need to pull this all off.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Foxtrot on December 06, 2015, 07:05:37 pm
Foxtrot nods over to Broadshield, "Yea, we'll need to do that. In the event that the Directors put up a fight, every minute we engage them is a minute Equinox will have to clear the building. And if we cuff them first, then that will be it. We keep them in holding and call it a day."
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on December 06, 2015, 11:35:52 pm
"Alright then, we storm the top 5 levels and detain the Directors, and maybe even their security..." he says, trailing off towards the end. "While at the same time Equinox is evacuating the entire building, and surrounding area. Great..." he continues. "Just one more thing. I know that we are going to face the 5 Directors of the 26, but are we going to expect the other 20 agents?" he asks.

Tinder smiles a bit as she hears this, the less ponies there the better, she's glad that all the agents will be elsewhere. She's really worried that there will be a lot of casualties with this mission, 20 more agents would just increase the number of casualties and no one wants that to happen.

Post by: Broadshield on December 08, 2015, 06:37:05 am
Broadshield smiles at this, knowing that there will be less ponies to deal with. "Alright, if there are no more questions, we better start getting ready, we only have a few hours until their meeting begins. Fox and Nivalia, I'll show you to where our interrogation rooms are. Monochrome, Pastel, whoever, lead Tinder and the others to the armory, start getting suited up." he says.

"Righty ho, boss." Monochrome stood up from his chair and beconed for everyone to follow him. As they walked to the armoury, Monochrome's body started to change into that of a mare, with his/her coat changing into a pastel green. Monochrome stopped walking and let out a sigh. "Ugh. FINE you can have the reigns for a bit Pastel. I was getting tired anyway." Monochrome said, before finishing his shift into Pastel.

"Great. More people I have to 'entertain'. Come this way, and don't break anything." Pastel said monotonously, leading them into the armoury. "Now, each of you are to grab some gear, and only that of which you need. If any of you mess around, I will remove you from the armoury. Are we clear?"

Foxtrot and Nivalia get up from their seats and follow Broadshield to the interrogation rooms. Both still couldn't  but let their eyes wander about at the establishment, rather curious in their nature. Regardless, the two remain focused on their objective and stay close to the guard.

Post by: Broadshield on December 08, 2015, 08:10:39 pm
Brodshield watches as Pastel leaves with the others and Tinder. 'Don't be too hard on her Pastel.' he thinks to himself. Getting up, he leads Foxtrot and Nivalia to the interrogation rooms. He leads them to a long hallway, where there are about 5 interrogation rooms on each side. Each interrogation room is comprised of a medium sized room, with nothing but a light source, two chairs and a table; it also has a smaller viewing room with a one way window so that ponies in the viewing room can see whats going on in the interrogation room. As they reach the hallway, a member of the security team arrives, with him a tray of handcuffs. Giving the handcuffs to Broadshield, he salutes the trio and walks off. "Alright, here are the handcuffs, as per your request Foxtrot. Now who's going to be using their magic?" he asks as he passes the tray to the pair.
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Tinder on December 08, 2015, 08:27:23 pm
As Tinder is told that she'll be leaving her group again she become visibly nervous, not wanting to be with this bunch of strange guards. She doesn't want to go against Broads orders though so she follows the rest of these ponies to the armory. Surpringly enough, seeing Monochrome change into a whole different pony doesn't seem to really phase her. As they get to the armory she just stares at everything in there before quickly moving to the side of the room so she's not in anyone's way. She figures she has all the weapons she'll need already, and armour would just irritate her burns. So, she decides to just not pick up anything.

Nivalia walks over to the tray and looks at the cuffs; glancing over to the rooms she takes a deep breath and begins. Her horn begins to glow a bright green, as well as the cuffs on the tray. Suddenly, markings appear on them and the walls of the rooms before fading away. After a moment of silence she sighs, "Alright, they're set. All we..." The changeling puts a hoof to her head and sits down, "Sorry, I'm just... lightheaded right now. I should..." Her legs begin to tremble before Foxtrot approaches her and wraps her hoof over his shoulder for support. "I'm sorry, I don't think I can come along, I just..."

"You ok Nivalia?" he asks, watching Nivalia's condition worsening. "As I see it, you have two options. You can either rest up at the med bay for a few hours, and if you are able to, you can come with us, or if you aren't able to recover, you can stay here at the med bay for the duration of the operation." he says. Turning back down the hallway, he spots two ponies from the medical unit heading down towards them. "I'm going to need a medic here!" he calls out to the pair.

Foxtrot lifts her up as the medics approach. "We'll have to send her there. Niv, you're sitting this one out." He looks over to the cuffs and points his hoof at them; his hoof and the cuffs glow as they levitate over to the unicorn. "Lets get her some rest and head out."

Tinder backs into the corner of the armoury and lays down, icing over her bag in the sight of all these guards again. She takes a couple deep breaths and just stares at every guard around her, trying to keep her eye on all of them all at once. Being around guards is nerve wracking enough for her, lone being around guards in a room full of weapons. She just covers her head and sighs, trying not to think about the things going through her head.

Upon arriving, the two medics immediately hold Nivalia up, making sure that she doesn't fall over. After that, they both carry her off to the Infirmary. Turning back to Foxtrot, he says "Alright, don't worry about her, the medics will make sure she's alright by the time we get back. Lets make our way to the armory." he says, leading Foxtrot to the armory and the rest of the group.

Post by: Foxtrot on December 15, 2015, 09:00:42 pm
Foxtrot looks around as he enters the armory, rather impressed at the arsenal available. Approaching the wall, he gathers his usual selection: a combat machete, rope, flashback grenades, crossbow pistol and accompanying bolts. Reaching into his jacket he pulls out four battered Kevlar plates and tosses them away, selecting new replacements and inserting them under his clothing. His hooves glow bright as he takes a deep breath, mentally preparing for the day ahead. The unicorn looks over to the group, "Alright everyone, it's now or never. Get your things ready and follow me." With that said he proceeds to the exit, where he'll lead the others to the Directors.

(Last round for posts. Starting final thread after this.)
Title: Re: Siege of Manehattan
Post by: Broadshield on December 15, 2015, 09:40:02 pm
Upon entering the armory, Broadshield immediately removes all of his items, deciding to grab new gear. For armor, he decides to grab his personal modified Equinox Standard Combat Armor (Lighter variant of Royal Guard Armor, with dragon scales inserted to provide protection while keeping weight low, with Equinox symbol and colours adorning the armor.) He also grabs a combat helmet just to be safe. Moving over to weapons, he grabs a katana, sheathing it on his left side. He also grabs a dozen throwing knives and puts them all away. He then grabs a dozen smoke and improvised flashbang grenades and puts them all onto his saddlebag. As a precaution, he also grabs a key, and opens a safe labeled 'Equinox Commanders Only'. From inside, he grabs a six round revolver, and several rounds, as well as a holster, putting them all away. "Sir, are you actually going to be bringing one of those weapons?" one of the Equinox soldiers asks. "Yeah, might as well bring this along, see what it can do." he responds before holstering his weapon. Upon getting all of his items ready, he makes his way over to Foxtrot. "Fox, I'm going to go and quickly address the division about the operation, since we're going to need every pony available to help evacuate. Take everyone else to where you need to go, I'll catch up with you all soon" he says, before leaving.

(Just self RP here, don't need to read if not interested)
A few minutes later, Broadshield was in a large meeting room, filled to maximum capacity with at least dozens soldiers, and even more soldiers were listening in from wherever they could. "Thank you all for coming on short notice, we don't have much time so I'll get straight to the point. The objective for this operation is to secure 5 V.I.P's known as the directors so that they will be put under arrest and transferred to Saddle Arabia. I will be part of a team to go and secure these 5, but I will need every available soldier to assist with another operation. This operation is going to be dangerous, and we cannot have any civilian casualties caught up in this. This is where all of you will come in. Firstly, Combat and Support soldiers, I want you all to evacuate the building except the top 5 floors of all civilians, but the issue is that we need to do this without the Directors knowing about it. We are using Phantom Protocol for this part of the operation, we cannot let them know we are here. Intel Team, we will need you to continue surveying the area for signs of activity, as well as relay information to us, and the others on any updates. Security Team, I want security on the base doubled, all over the place, especially around the interrogation rooms. So does anyone have any questions?" he asks. No one responds. "Alright soldiers, their meeting starts in less than an hour, you all know what we need to do, lets move out!" he says
"Ooh-rah!" they all respond, before filing out, getting ready for the operation. Broadshield, deciding that he needs to now head off, heads off to the operation, hoping that this mission will be a success, not just for the sake of Equinox, or his friends, but for the sake of the rest of Equestria.

Tinder raises her head and looks around as the people she knows and trusts enter. She stands up and fiddles with her bag to make sure it's secure, before making her way over to glance at the weapons and armour once more. She looks at it all before shaking her head and walking to the door, figuring that the weapons she carries with her are enough, and armour would just make it hard for her to fight because it would irritate her burns. She nods at Fox and Broad, as ready as she can be for what's to come.

Pastel watched the group as they prepare to leave. She grabbed a sword in his teeth, and then holstering it next to her saddlebag, while opting out for armour, as it would be difficult to change clothes to match a change in physique if she happened to shift halfway through the mission. However, she did grab a magical crystal, placing it in her bag for if she needed it. Pastel then followed the group out of the base.
