Current Two New Contests are now live. Check out The Twelve Labours Series Two as well as The Final Hazard, both in the Writing Contests subforum.


I have been writing as a hobby for around seventeen years now (wow does that make me sound old). I have been a regular member and roleplayer on no less than eight different online forums during that time (including the old RPG), five six of which no longer exist.

I was previously a regular on the Homestuck forums, but I became so sick of thread turnover there that I asked around and eventually found the Guild. Since joining, I have exclusively only participated in Advanced RPs. Before Mahz gave NRPs their own subforum, I used to be an NRP regular in the Advanced Subforum.

If you ask anybody who has written with me in previous RPs, they should tell you that I have a generally open schedule, I post regularly and in a timely fashion, and I never drop an RP once I join unless the thread dies. Some of them may tell you that I have extensive expertise within the realms of Biology, Psychology, and Physics, which I will make no effort to validate since there is no way I can provide hard proof of aforementioned alleged expertise to anybody over the internet (though I am happy to try and answer any questions you send my way).

My favorite fandom is the Myst franchise, which seemingly nobody other than me has ever heard of.

I have been quadruple secret banned from the guild chat. That is not a joke.

Upon reflection I prioritized Luca's reaction to the more interesting (to him) spectacle. But hey -- if he survives (that's a maybe) we might learn something? RISKS!

edit: also I didn't mention it in the post, because it's not something Luca would ever consciously think about, but he's got all kinds of robo-coordination in his bio, which makes such an improbable diving-save more feasible.

Yes, I noted his mechanical-related precision and coordination prior to this. A pity Luca could not be in two places at once to help save Amelie.

I will wait for everyone else to post before proceeding further.
Incidentally @Terminal, since Luca is (canon) knowledgeable about what's going on, is there anything in particular you'd like to be going on? My intention is to improvise some science for the current predicament and run with it full-force, so if there's any conclusion he SHOULD be reaching -- i.e. there's some very specific thing happening that should be clear to this character (and that I wouldn't figure out with a quick refresher on Faraday cages), it might......

.....well what I'm asking here is this: is there any information readily available to Luca that will facilitate an accurate assessment by mdk?

As far as I am aware, unless Luca has particular expertise here - no. Luca was just the only passenger at the time looking at the back of the Limousine who could be relied to know what electroplating was due to his specific background. Ariett should also know about it and be able to recognize or at least analogize it on sight, but at the time of the post she was not looking towards the back of the limousine. The hypothetical questions I posed in my post were intended to indicate an uncertain origin of the occurring effect, so there is no conclusion I expect your characters to come to in order to avoid an imminent death. It is not insomuch that they cannot understand it, than it is simply a touch outside of their immediate realms of specialization. I specifically mentioned molecular golems since Luca has probably either seen or at least knows about similar effects that could be produced using them, but whether or not they are being employed here is uncertain and would need to be investigated.

I do encourage inventive problem solving however. Proceed at will.

His visor is facing down, so no trickshots. Feel free to fire at him with either the magnum or Vector (or anything else), but due to reasons that shall be elucidated in time, no autoing.

If Donny survives his predicament, you will no longer have to worry about the edit.

"Ah'll spare yuh thah convincin' talk 'bout how much longah an' more pleasant yuh life will be if yuh cooperate. Yuh got ten seconds tuh tell me information good 'nuff tah make me think twahce 'bout seein' what happens when a fella takes a few rounds from this puppeh in thuh bawlls."

That was when Donny noticed the armored knight slowly pushing himself up off the ground. The arrow the kid back by the limousine had fired had hit the visor squarely, but the head was a touch too large to fit through - it had gouged the visor's edges and caught. Sticking out as it was, the arrow had probably penetrated the knight's left eye, but it had not been a killing shot.

"Something like this." He answered Donny's rhetorical question with grim invocation, raising a second large, cylindrical bolt in his right hand, just like the one his predecessor had fired at the limousine - clearly preparing to ram the projectile into the ground with his remaining strength.

"Don't!" The crippled thug cried out, his face contorting in terror as he immediately turned on his back and tried to crawl away.
Whelp, pretty sure I've fucked up. Left an edit a minute after my last post because I didn't like how I had written a certain sentence. INB4 a sumo wrestler with the word "EDIT" scrawled across his belly bulldozes Donny through a wall.

Incoming shortly. Within the next 30 minutes actually, since it is just the one action so far.
