A harder turn of your wrist, and you're forced to drop your gun. Pain shoots all the way up your forearm. Your other hand is trying to keep hers' from choking you out.

Once the pistol clatters against the floor, the woman relinquishes your wrist, instead using both hands to try and choke you. You keep fighting her off with the one hand while your other works on opening your first aid kit, and freeing your needles. As you float one syringe out, she seems to notice what you're doing--she starts to try and maneuver you, or shield herself from the needle with your body, but you unleash your bloody bandages on her. Your bandages cover her mask, blinding her; she reacts on instinct, lifting you into the air and slamming you onto the counter behind her. Your open first aid kit spills a number of its contents, including most of your needles, to the floor.

You feel sharp pain and an intense burning, broken glass vials of acid and volatile chemicals carving into your back. The needle you had hovering in the air hits the floor as you lose your concentration; you struggle to focus on anything but the incredible pain in your back, and the heavy pounding in your chest.

Hahahaha THIS IS GOING SO WELL *cries*

I know this is hard, but numb that pain using the skill we learnt to do so, and try really hard to roll off that table somehow because while that lady is blinded, she's going to assume we're where she left us and that's the tabletop full of volatile crap that's in our back.

I'm not too sure if we'll have the mind to syringe her after that point but numb the pain first, I say. It's probably causing our heart to beat way more than it should under level.

EDIT: Just going to add that Fuse had better be having better luck than we are holding his own out there. :'D

fuck fuck fuckity fuck

a) use the bandages to pull her into the works of the electric door beside her, assuming it's still electrified
b) squeeze her head. we can crush a sheet metal vent like a tin can, we can crush her fucking skull.
c) roll off the counter and chuck that final beaker of acid at her

what ever we do, we need to get off the counter and out of those chemicals. can we get our blood to neutralize the acid? we presumably would know we need a base to do so. also, we need to control our heart rate or our chest is going to explode.

Stepping in real quick to point out that Mochi is very right. We're on Level, that's gonna nuke our insides unless we keep a handle on things.

Besides all actions already mentioned (assuming we can do a few more actions because I don't know how much we can actually do at a time), let's chuck one of those yellow volatile flasks at the shield generator thing while a Tiger Lady isn't standing between us and that thing.

I mean we might not be able to fully control it with blood for sure, but volatile stuff will surely fritz something in there, right?

I say Use Mochi's B and C. Get off the counter and try Cici's idea for the generator.
Mochi's A might short out the door, and Fuse might need it.

weeeel yea I think we should at least try to numb the pain, get off the table and try to give her a dose of our blood

Question: The blood can give the effects of Level - but they're not limited to the same time duration as the drug, right? Can we TURN IT OFF?
Mochi 28th Aug 2017, 1:00 PM edit delete reply
the problem there is we actually smoked level. the drug is in our blood stream, it's not us using our blood to mimic the drug. the actual chemical is in our system, we don't know how to counteract that.

A good question, though. When/if we get downtime after escaping this shield, investigating the ability to purge ourselves of chemicals would be worth our time.

Another vote for:
- connecting Tigerface's head to the door frame
- painkilling yourself
- crawling off that damn table
- turning some of your red into betablockers to limit adrenaline effect. Something easy to synthetise for convenience. If you don't remember any from your medical classes, ask Dr. Finch to picture some as vividly as he can.

betablockers yes good i was trying to think of what the opposite of adrenaline would be
