On a completely different matter, she was very uncomfortable with not knowing if she could trust her magic, so she was going to try to create an orb, or anything, just a decimeter in diameter if she could right in front of her.
For the briefest and most infinitesimal of moments, Amelie thought she might have managed to create something. Of course, as her magic had just rebounded on her moments before and as the entire group was careening through a mysterious structure at high speed, if she had made anything it instantly collided with the walls of the strange vessel of force the knights had called a slug - though normally Amelie might well have been able to keep a redirection orb in place relative to herself, the curious nature of this place plus her condition were both obviously creating problems.
"Hey, do you feel that?" Hiecro gestured at the male pavise knight, a frown visible through her now only faintly stained visor.
The knight paused for a moment, glancing to the side and looking down as he focused. "...Yeah." He said finally. "I think we're wobbling. The slug, that is."
Luca could feel as much as well. His internal gyroscopics were telling him that the spherical well of force they were riding in had been, up until a moment ago, proceeding along a precise, curving trajectory, but the invisible platform they were all standing upon was remaining relatively stationary. Now though, there was a faint sort of oscillation present in the sphere's motion. As if something had pressed upon it, making it pinwheel as it rolled along its track. The wobbling itself did not seem to be intensifying, but it was odd how abruptly it had started.
"That's...not supposed to happen?" Hiecro asked, a look of apprehension on her face. The male pavise knight shrugged.
"I don't know the exact numbers, but the occurrence is supposed to be astronomically rare." He saw the look on Hiecro's face. "Also harmless. Er. Not an issue." He assuaged with a placating gesture. "The corridor is keeping our relative motion contained. If it had happened outside it might have been a problem, but the only thing that's different is that the external walls are probably spinning while the interior walls aren't."
As the last word left his mouth, the slug shot out of the corridor and back into space. The latticework of metallic channels and trenches quickly losing cohesion and disintegrating as space collapsed upon itself behind them. Out of the blue, everyone within the slug was come upon by a sensation of weightlessness - followed by the sensation of the invisible surface they were standing on vanishing, leaving them without any support.
"Uh." The male pavise knight said as he floated in place, his eyes widening in fear. "That's not-"
He let go of his pavise - either out of confusion or terror. It drifted placidly across the length of the slug's interior a ways, before making contact with the invisible walls that were presumably in place, keeping the passengers protected from the vacuum outside. The pavise hit something unseen - and immediately began to pinwheel end-over-end at such a high speed the eye could not follow it, save for Luca's - and he determined that the pavise had a speed of well over a thousand RPM. The pavise wildly spun away from the wall before turning in some odd parabolic arc, hitting the side of the invisible wall again and suddenly flattening against it - and began to orbit the group, adhered to the unseen walls of the slug by centrifugal force as it orbited around so quickly that its passage was leaving behind optical after-images, leaving nine slowly spinning and disintegrating depictions of the shield, the emblem displaying the scales slowly flaking away - the angelic being's wings being plucked off before its whole body eroded, leaving only the shackled, damned figures writhing as one as the sole surviving feature as the shield's curved frame crumpled and flattened itself from the force.
"Nobody move!" Hiecro cried out, her voice torn but her movement utterly still as she lay suspended in space. "Nobody has any more or less velocity than the slug right now! Just stay still and we'll all land safely..."
Below, the singularity that had been New Nemea reappeared, and the details of the stretched out horizon began to coalescence around the small dot as a disc-like aura as the slug approached. Behind them, the massive, double-helix structure began to fade away, just a few lines of color against the void of space and stars.
