You could blood them but you don't.

You sync Caius again and you charge forward.

You don't cry.

Not yet.

The shorter but heavier built man runs at you. You start to fight him. Caius is a better fighter than he is. You dodge his punches. You hit him back. You drive your fists into his face. Again. And again.

He disappears.

For just... a moment. An instant.

He's not there, just long enough to throw you off. He strikes you with enough force to drop you to one knee, but it's not enough to stop you. You get back up.

"Something's wrong,"

your Red mutters.

"Something isn't right."

Ignore illusions, go for Prophet. Use our alien nature to just blast through his stupid mind games. Stretch our already-somewhat-alien'd arm thin, stab him through, and DRINK THE FUCKER.

...And hope Michelle is still alive, and that she and Red can bring us back from this.

...Okay maybe don't do that cuz it might be tough to put our arm back together afterwards and we would probably benefit from having two functional arms in order to rescue Michelle properly and for real like. But still do something appropriately unexpected and violent to him. We can kinda-sorta see him, that's all we need.

And turn him from Prophet to Martyr?
You know what that kind of thing does to the rallying forces right?

Cause you're doing it right now.

i really don't think either of us give a shit right now.

this man dies today.

let's feed him his own fucking gas mask.

Who would see him be "martyred"? We've already knocked out the surveillance cameras, and his followers are *already* frothing at the mouth with hatred for us.

Yeah, we could definitely benefit from calming down (maybe blood-Level our own brain a bit and focus our senses)... okay, *I* could benefit from calming down... but I don't necessarily think martyring the guy is something we need to worry about, or something that we can necessarily even prevent. He's too dangerous to allow to live, being able to mess with our heads like this.

...Wait, the big guy's just an illusion Dammit, I wanted to suplex a mutant in a chicken mask onto a dude! Prophet, why do you have to be such a piece of shit!?

I swear, that potted plant better not be an illusion, because I want to throw <i>something</i> through his stupid, smug, wheezing <b>face</b>

Okay, well, never mind the fact that I can't do formatting right. Bah.

The point is, I just kinda want to bop him one for this because that's just... Ugh. Uggghhh. Keep 'im alive, sure, but... Make sure he understands we're not just gonna take being toyed with like that and whatnot.

hi i'm taking a break from my rage fest to be actually helpful because i can see how someone can struggle trying to format bbcode when they're not used to it! the easiest way is, of course, to highlight the text you want to format and use the buttons along the top of the comment box. if you want to type your formatting out, though, all you have to do is use your HTML tags but replace the triangular brackets with square ones! so for instance, "<b>" becomes "[b ]" (without the space obviously).

At this point, keeping him alive might just be a bad idea. It will probably be too difficult to extract any useful information from him to justify the effort, and we're in a situation that's hard to control; we don't need to be adding *another* distraction by trying to hold back our blows just enough to not kill him.

There's also the fact that we don't know how he does his illusion thing-- he may be able to do it while pinned or tied up, for example. Probably safest just to try to kill him rather than juggling all those unknowns.

I go to sleep for a nap and wake up to THIS, oh GEEZ.

Well, yeah, okay, I'm convinced that feeling Michelle die was a part of the fear illusion.

We need to recover ourselves first and see what's actually real, and then face that Prophet head-on to show him we see straight through this crap. Reduce our stress, and feel for Michelle, beyond the fear.
