event end: the beginning of the end

[At the Church of Salvation, the doors have been blasted open as if by a grenade. The interior of the church is normal- normal, that is, save for the glitch pockets surrounding the pews, growing and widening with each passing second. As with every glitch pocket you've encountered thus far, there are whispers tugging at the edges of your mind... but here, strangely, they're rather quiet despite your close proximity to the holes. The whispers are muted, as if something is suppressing them- and it's not hard to figure out what that something is.

A man is kneeling in front of the central pulpit, head bowed, unmoving. You've never seen him in person before, but somehow, instinctively, you know who this man is- or was. As you approach, his body flickers, rippling with the same sort of chaotic nothingness as the glitch pockets. You know, without asking, that Jonathan Zemekis won't be here for long.

As you stand before him, he raises his head and looks at you. His eyes are weary, broken, and surprisingly human; his voice is hoarse and defeated.]


It's you.

let me know if this okay or not

[Henry had to know why this man did it. Sure, he heard scraps and pieces of the man's intentions but he didn't get the full story. This wasn't like Storybrooke.

He didn't get a book that told him everything about what happened before Mayfield or about the residents. He just knew that were some bad people doing bad things. For all he knew, this man was either well intentioned but went crazy or was evil and ruined lives. So as he slowly steps inside, Henry will look at him.]

Why did you do it?

Why did you make Mayfield? Why did you start erasing everyone's memories of their old lives? Why did you force people who weren't even from your world to come here?

I would kill you.

.....But I don't think you'll be needing it, as absurdly unsatisfying as that is.

[Susan appears in the space between seconds, sword drawn and expression as unruffled as it always is. In her eyes, though... Within that calm demeanor lies a deep enmity, a hatred usually reserved only for the likes of the Auditors. Reality would flicker around this woman whether or not Zemekis was about to be consumed by his own creation.]

Are you happy?

[Crowe stands there, rifle in his hands pointed at Zemekis. He's not sure if there's a point to doing this, but it's a safety precaution. His hands, however, are shaking, and Crowe's intense stare is as weary as Zemekis's.]


So now what.

[Jenny crosses her arms. She's seen broken men before and, like a scared dog they lash out. She's ready for it.]

Why the hell did you bring us here? We're not puppets for you to play with.

[After the chaos of the zombies, Bazett is looking worse for wear. Nevertheless, she drags herself to the Church door, standing just outside and waiting to hear what the others have to say first. Or, if the old man would notice her after everyone else was finished.]

[ The hugenormous space marine walks down the aisle towards the pulpit, feeling vaguely off in a church as he always has, expression hidden behind his impassive visor. ]

Yes. It is me. [ He touches his blood-greased armor, where hundreds of finely carved names can be seen carved onto his armor. A name for every person this town has taken from him, from Sanguinius all the way to Arf.]

And I have come, for you.

[ Loken raises the bolter. ]

Feel free to speak any last words you like.

[ A voice comes from the pews, as she does not step into his line of sight, not just yet. ]

When did control come to mean more to you than anything else?

[He'll pause as he listens.]

But then why did you start getting rid of their old memories, about the people they loved and happiness they had before?
shadow_possession: (Blood)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-11-23 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, us.

[Dainn approaches Zemekis, much more calm than he had been all day. he was, frankly, tired of all this and wanted it to end.]

By your state, am I free to assume you are giving up?

[She expected more of a monster out of this person, the one who trapped all of Mayfield. She heard the word of another who took over, apparently with their help. She rushed ahead of anyone who would have wanted to accompany her here, though she'll be easy to spot if one does follow, as she stops just inside, watching the other people talk.

She wanted to vent, to yell at him for what he did. But seeing him there, defeated like that, washed away the last of her anger. She almost wanted to help him, even after everything. It was finally over, after all, and with that new person in control, Zemekis couldn't be that bad anymore, could he?]

Not ever. Your little project's a fucking mess. What do you plan to do about it? You owe it to the people you brought here to do something.

Geez, what a mess...

[ Rin's managing well enough around the scattered parts of wood and whatever else made up the door along the floor. Honestly Mayfield's seen better days, but for this curious magus who found interest in glitch pockets and alternate dimensions, she's here not to pass judgment (no, that's for the hero types of this town), but instead to educate herself further.

And possibly get an answer to a thought that's plagued her for most of her stay here. ]

You there... I'll keep you alive long enough to get the answers I want, understand that much. [ If anything, Mayfield's turned her more into the magus she tried desperately not to become. ] I want to know how this was possible. How you were able to bring people from different points of time and parallel worlds into a single place.

So how did you do it?
inthebones: (Humoring)

[personal profile] inthebones 2012-11-23 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
Whyever not?

You've managed to enslave, by loose estimation, upwards of a thousand unwitting people in this delusional reality you call a paradise. The breadth and depth of the people you've made intensely unhappy spreads farther than any other madman in any world or any dimension. We must represent at least several hundred cultures, many of which don't even have humans, if not several hundred planets altogether. You haven't merely played the puppeteer. You've been the concertmaster of a hundred different symphonies playing simultaneously to create the most cacophonous discord ever heard by sapient ears.

I'm sure you've broken some sort of record. You'll be remembered forever.

[That name sends a disgusted shudder down her spine.]

You mean that Johnson. From January. What has she done? And how come you speak as if you are vulnerable to her power?

[Crowe tenses, finger reaching for the trigger. But he doesn't pull it yet. That shaking in his hands is only getting worse.]

I-I don't know what to do! I-- I want to shoot you, right here and now. But it doesn't fix anything! Nothing will be fixed! All the damaged you've done-- Do you even have any idea?!

[ He pauses for a moment. He wants to kill him, nothing but rage in his hearts, but... he halts, at least for a moment. ]

Very well. This was all about 'saving' us, saving yourself. Your world, the one I saw, is indeed terrible, though I have endured something of similar horror. When we began to resist, when we lashed out and it became clear it was no longer tenable to keep things together, why did not you just release us? You had to have known it would end like this.
