H.S. Archive (Tinder/Morgan)
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:11:40 pm »
Towards the 40th floor of the building, rows upon rows of books and scrolls rest silently in the complex’s vast archive. The ceiling height itself rises to two stories, utilizing rows of ceiling fans equipped with large lights to illuminate the texts, tables, and chairs strewn about in a disorganized manner. Bravo lands his hooves onto the ceramic tiling, first looking up at the lights above. Spreading his wings, he takes off and aims his first arrow; flying up to the end of each row, he fires the projectile across the room. The lights are shattered to pieces, instantly casting a third of the archive in shadow. On the far end of the chamber, Tinder emerges in a flash of light, landing on a table half covered in literature. Her posture and position doesn’t change; a  second later Morgan appears facing her, the barrel of the rifle mere inches away from Tinder’s nose as the unicorn’s ice daggers point dangerously close to several parts of her body.

Tinder had been pretty focused on Bravo while they were upstairs, since he was the one aiming at her, so she hadn't noticed who it was that crashed through the window. As she is quite suddenly teleported she looks around at her new surroundings quickly, looking back to see the rifle a few inches from her nose and to see Morgan holding it. It takes her a second to recognize her, she hasn't seen her for years. When that look of recognition sweeps over her face her magic fizzles and pops a bit, unable to stay stable with this unexpected turn of events. The daggers around Morgan all fall to the ground a few shattering completely, "B-bear?"

"Hey Tinder. Thought I would run into you here." She threw her repeater down by her side and hugged her foalhood friend. "Good to finally see you again."

Several cracks ring throughout the archive again as another arrow flies across the room, shattering the second of three rows of lights illuminating the opposite end of the room. A single row of light in the middle of the room is all that's left, providing plenty of cover for the Director as he swoops down and maneuvers around the towering bookshelves, a couple of papers flying off into the air. About 20 meters away, he finds the two locked in an embrace. The Pegasus smiles, the option to kill two birds with one stone set up right before him. He pulls out another arrow and sets up behind a bookshelf resting the arrow on a shelf between a stack of books. Eyeing up the target, he only sees Morgan's back, the perfect position for a shot.

Tinder hugs back, holding her tight until she hears more of the lights shatter. When this happens she lets go and grabs onto Morgan's hoof, pulling her to try to get her away from where they were. "My daggers shattering probably alerted them, we're in too much of a open position, we need cover." She tries to make a shield of ice for them but her magic just fizzles and cracks, "My magic is out for a while, you're gonna need to keep us defended until it comes back. I need to find enough cover so that I can take a few pills...And it's really good to see you again Bear." It's easy to tell she's struggling a bit to keep herself from breaking down right now, she's just forcing herself to keep going.

"Take whatever you need we need to be str-....what?!" Morgan stiffens up. Her body releases Tinder and stands up as one hoof reached back to her backside. She wobbles a bit when suddenly she jolts forward. Her eyes shut as she falls forward with two arrows sticking out of her back. Her repeated slides off her body towards Tinder. "cough* take it and shoot!"

Tinder stares at  Morgan in confusion for half a second, not wanting to believe what just happened. She finally gets her best friend back and then she gets shot, she is not letting this person hurt Morgan anymore. She grabs onto the repeater and quickly slings it around her, then grabs Morgan and as quick as she can pulls her into cover behind a shelf. "I did not spend the last few years crying and hallucinating in a playground once a year to have you die on me as soon as I actually see you. I don't even know how to use this thing Bear, I can't even use my magic now."

"You dont need magic to operate this thing!" Morgan grimaced in pain. "Just aim and pull the trigger!" Her balance was off otherwise she'd do it herself.

Tinder nods a couple times as she peeks out from behind their cover, aiming at where the arrows came from and pulling the trigger. She does have pretty spot on aim from years of practice with other ranged weapons, but Bravo could be anywhere by now. She's just firing at where he was last time he shot.

Hearing the shot a pet distance away gives Bravo an idea on where the two might've moved to. "Heh, this is all too easy. Can't wait to get my hooves on whatever four eyes brought to the game. But first things first." Taking flight, he flaps his wings and glides down to the other side of the archive, being illuminated as he crosses the row of lights in the center of the chamber. Landing on top of one of the shelves, the Director pulls out another arrow and looks around for his target. It's become a game of cat and mouse, and one's already injured.

Tinder finally got back up on her hooves and gripped the rifle as it was till slung around Tinder and aimed it towards where she saw movement which happened to be where Bravo was. She fired 3 shots in that direction.

Tinder holds her breath as Morgan takes the shots, letting out the breath when she's done. She takes this little second of quiet to grab her pill bottle from her bag and take a few pills, needing them to keep going right now and hoping that they will help bring her magic back. She looks at Morgan when she swallows the pills and frowns a little, "We need to find better cover. Somewhere where I can stabilise those arrows so they don't move around too much. I have gauze that will do the trick, you can get them removed when we get you to a hospital. I've been stabbed and shot enough to know that removing them is a very bad idea right now."

One of the three shots grazes Bravo in the shoulder, nearly hitting the base of his wing. "Damn it those projectiles fly faster than I expected." The pegasus looks up, noting the tall bookcase he's hovering behind and has an idea. Placing his bow next to him, he flies to the top, remaining in cover to keep from getting shot again. Putting all of his strength behind him, he pushes the tall bookshelf over, creating a domino effect of falling rows of books and shelves, each crashing into each other with a loud thump as a flurry of papers fly into the air. The shelves keep falling, several more rows and his two targets will be buried in books.

"Tinder! Use you horn to freeze those shelves!! You can do that right?!" Morgan panicked limping and trying to pull Tinder with her away from the books.

Tinder runs away from the books with Morgan, scrunching her nose as she tries to use her magic. It pops and fizzles for a second before firing to life. She grins a bit as her magic returns and quickly freezes pillars of ice around the bookshelves to keep them from falling over on top of them. "Like that Morgan?" She looks ahead and makes a small shelter out of ice for the two of them to go to, she points at it and lightly pulls Morgan towards it. "In there, I'll freeze up the entrance and we can stabilize those arrows."
