It’s Raining Heroes

lickersuck:

meet-the-ashford-twins:

Alexia watched as BOW Girl went skidding down the street.  A hit like that must have hurt.  Looking back at the hulking behemoth, Alexia watched as it stumbled back in pain and clutched at something behind its back.  It spun around and Alexia saw a large cord protruding from its back.

"There!  Target that thing on his back.  It causes him pain." Alexia yelled.  The soldiers opened fire, round after round slamming into the behemoth’s flesh.  It it seemed to do was stagger him, because he started to flail his arms around, staring at the floor.  Alexia hoped it hadn’t managed to hurt BOW Girl.

Guns took aim up at the creature storming the streets.
                  “Up on it’s back— easier said then accomplished.”
Irises darting around the area, there had to be an easy way to get to him. Fire escape on a nearby building could help, but same time could they hold it still long enough? Worth the shot, darting off to the right, she started her way down the alley and up the escape.

Metal clanking under her boots, gloved hands gripping tightly to the bars. The second floor might be enough of an angle, hell just in case she would go to the fourth. Two steps at a time
, not even taking the time to stop, on the fourth floor pushing her feet off the banner in a jump. A delay should have happened, she should have watched him for a few seconds. But the opportunity was small, Quinn was lucky enough to have taken hold of one of the many bone fragments protruding from it’s form. Keeping a tight grip, she climbed, dodging it’s hands every few seconds. It found out she was on it’s back, and wasn’t happy. He really wanted her gone.

Alexia watched as the giant lumbered around, swinging from left to right and groping around behind him.  Looking around, Alexia could see a few of the soldiers lining up shots and a jeep with a machine gun parked nearby.  A glance back to the giant and she made up her mind.  The soldiers weren’t firing because they didn’t want to risk hitting BOW Girl.  But if the giant kept on he would end up hurting or killing her.

Running at the jeep, Alexia hoped the gun wasn’t locked and was loaded already.  While she knew enough to maintain a small pistol, Alfred knew a lot more about large firearms than she did.  Jumping onto the back of the jeep, she nearly lost her footing, her heels giving her no grip on the floor at all.  Alexia lunged for the gun and used it to pull herself up.  It wasn’t locked, it rotated fine.  All she had to do was aim and squeeze the trigger.

Running the sights along the giant’s body, Alexia tried to figure out the best place to shoot.  All she was hoping to do was distract it long enough that BOW Girl and or the soldiers could do the real damage.  A torso shot ran too much risk of the bullet flying through and hitting BOW Girl.  Alexia lined the sights up to the giant’s nose until she realised that a headshot could cause it to fall back, crushing BOW Girl.  If anything she needed it to fall forward.  Alexia lowered the gun to aim at the giants left leg, just under the knee.

Squeezing the trigger, Alexia counted bullets.  Five hits on the left, the leg blown backwards and the giant forced to put its arms out to stop it smashing its face in as it fell.  Alexia could see BOW Girl, clinging onto the giant’s back.  Alexia aimed the gun at the giant’s right elbow and held fire.  If it tried to get back up, she’d let loose another hail of bullets and give it an incentive to stay down.

Alexia nodded.  No sense dragging up everything by adding in what had happened to her father.  Alexia scowled at Alfred, her way of saying that she didn’t approve of him treating them like soldiers.

"Yes, he did.  I think Alfred got confused between where we are and the past."  Alexia glanced around, even though the room was quite large, it felt oppressive.  As if the walls would close around her at any moment.

"I wouldn’t know.  It’s probably as safe as the hospital was the first time we came to Silent Hill."  Alexia leaned against a crate for a second to rest her feet as Alfred fiddled with a panel somewhere against the wall.

"Alf, what’re you…" Alexia started before the floor slowly descended.  The whole room started to go down as machinery groaned somewhere.  With a loud bang, it stopped and a metal shutter rose up.

"The basement." Alfred said, turning to look at Lisa and Alexia, "Now all we have to do is go down the corridor, through a maintenance room and then follow another corridor to a lift that’ll take us back to the ground level."

"You make it sound so easy." Alexia joked, dryly.  If her previous experience was anything to go by, the town was not going to let things go that easily.

"Ah…" Lisa nodded. "Easy to do in this kind of place…" she said, also watching as Alfred poked at the wall. "Oh. Er, well, I’m glad we all have something then…" She tapped her flashlight against her leg, looking around as if waiting for something to jump out at them.

So when the room started to move, Lisa jumped.

"S-so, if everything goes well, we’ll be out of here soon? Er….providing the town doesn’t…" Lisa bit at her lip, trying to look around and down the corridor. Seeing how out of sorts the twins had become, Lisa really was worried.

"I’m sure the town won’t do much…" she muttered quietly. "It’s only done stuff to me, the hospital only hurts me…"

Taking the lead again, Alfred started to head down the corridor, his footsteps echoing off the metal walls.

"Hopefully we will be." Alfred said, looking back to Lisa and smiling what he hoped was a calm smile.  Walking to the end of the corridor, Alfred pushed open the wooden door into the boiler room.  Two large boilers sat on opposite ends of the room, with the pipes leading up into the rest of the facility.  For convenience all three sections of the island had had their own power, heating and water supplies.  Seeing no threats Alfred walked briskly to the other door and stopped.

"There’s something in this corridor.  I can hear music." Alfred said, grimacing.  He knew that tune.  With the town’s history, Alfred had a good idea what would be waiting behind the door.  "Alexia, keep Lisa safe."  Throwing the door open, Alfred ran out with the machine gun ahead of him.  The door swung shut behind him.  Followed by two different guns firing and a round flying through the door and into the ceiling.

Alfred ducked behind an oil drum and checked the machine gun. He had used ten rounds.  Twenty left.  Seeing the door ease open, Alfred caught Alexia peeking through, with Lisa not far behind.  Another shot rang out, slamming into the wall above Alfred’s head.

Ashfords at Large

meet-the-ashford-twins:

Alfred smiled, pleased to have the opportunity to be doing something more useful than leaning against a wall.  A quick check that Sneeze was still asleep, and Alfred followed the agent out of the building and over to some of the other vehicles which had the supplies.  As he walked, Alfred reflected on the fact that nobody was showing even an ounce of fear.  The soldiers looked like they couldn’t have been calmer if they were just working in an office, instead of manning a perimeter with bioweapons potentially being used.

Agent Diakos unlocked three of the jeeps and opened the back door of one of them.  Inside was a stack of tent equipment.

"There’s the same in those two, more or less." Diakos said as Alfred opened one of the other jeeps.

Leaving the set up to everyone else, Jill scanned the maps.  By the looks of things they potentially had one more town to worry about.  The water source between the two of them was shared, but it was a smaller local lake and not used for anything else.  At most they would have to block off the county.

Pulling her phone, she called for the county itself to be sealed until they could get it figured out.

"Seal it off and hopefully it won’t spread," she muttered to herself.  They only had a few hours max before the military would be all over the place and it would be much harder for them to bully their way in if she already had things in motion.

God she didn’t want to deal with them.  The red tape and general BS the government always threw out there made her want to break out in hives…. and usually pissed her off.  

"I don’t suppose you’ve heard any rumors of a new virus I should know about?" she asked Alexia.  If the answer was no she wasn’t sure if it were good or bad… New meant a learning curve, but it could also mean weaker.

Alexia shook her head, “Sorry, I haven’t heard anything about a new virus, rumors or otherwise.”  Alexia wished she had, since that would have meant she could be a bigger help than she currently was.  At the moment the unused coat rack stood next to the door was more useful.  Unless the virus was Tyrant, Veronica or some derivative of the two Alexia wouldn’t be much use.

Looking down at her laptop Alexia realized that there was something she could offer.  Even though Alexia knew the BSAA already had the data stored on her laptop it could hardly hurt to let them have another.

"If it helps I have a partial copy of Umbrella’s archive your scientists can have, might help determine what virus you’re dealing with." Or it might be completely irrelevant.  There was no way to know for sure without trying it.  It was better than nothing though.

Hearing an increase in volume from people talking into radios Alexia figured things were starting to come together for the BSAA.  Hopefully they would be able to stop this outbreak from spreading very far.

Looking at this infantile response to this post of mine, I was SO right on the money that he/she would shout and continue name calling. The person has since deleted the post above for some reason…

Anyway, I’m not going to be rebutting this post since I said I would ignore it.

I’m going to do a PSA that this user stoops to puerile arguments by throwing personal attacks when he/she doesn’t get his/her way.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to argue with this user, be prepared for insults which hints that you prostitute yourself if you’re a woman. If you’re man, perhaps he/she might insinuate that you don’t have testicles.

Other than that, feel free to ignore this fellow and his/her frivolous tomfoolery.

//wow

like

other than being like 15 (at most), this child is just going to continue to scream, kick and cry until she gets her way. 

i just… it is like a trainwreck and i just can’t stop staring at it like… she can’t decide if i am wrong, how i am wrong, if you are wrong— fight about ada— no wait leon? shift, knowing your location is bad?? screAMING INSULTS!!! 

if anyone wants her IP it is readily available upon request. i will gladly give it to anyone that asks and i am also going to be adding it to my blocked list. 

silentmortal asked:

Uh, excuse you again, you still haven't answered my previous question. If you're gonna leave such a vile comment on MY post, you better have a goddamn good reason for it.

ask-a-w:

silentmortal:

hxnnigan:

//uh, pardon me?

first off all, you don’t come into my ask box running your mouth in such a matter.

secondly, what the hell are you talking about?? who said what where now— not that i’m complied to answer anything but a little context would be dandy.

Okay, you know what? You can make whatever assumption you want about me. Bexause I am clam most of the time. But what I can’t stand are people like you who shoot their mouth off in such a idiotic manner.

You’re not gonna be nice to me, then I won’t be nice to you. Because you have provenn yourself to be quite the cunt here.

All i’m gonna say to you is the two reasons (Wow! You only came up with two reasons? You sure showed me!) as to why Claire is ”shallow” are completely baseless and are spiteful just for the sake of it. And how can I take them seriously, when you’re RP is about Hunnigan, AKA the-character-no-one-give-a-shit-about.

Oh, you know where I live now? So what, you’re a stalker too? I’m gonna report this, because you have clearly psychological issues if you went as far as looking up where I live.

Knowing your location is from a site called StatCounter. We roleplayers use it all the time because there are anonymous haters who randomly come into our inbox and leave nonsensical hate. We want to know who is coming from where so we can avoid their blogs.

We don’t stalk your blogs at all because they usually come from their own blogs to ours. You come to our blogs and we can see the IP and everything.

So anyway, to the main point. Calling my friend a cunt because you were rude to her? Wow.

So let’s start from the very beginning.

[Reference post]

So CJ (the hxnnigan roleplayer aka my friend) said she doesn’t want to buy the game because “fucking Claire” is in it. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’ve seen a lot of  ”why is fucking Leon in Damnation, RE6” and I’m not riled up by it even though Leon is my fav character

For the record, I don’t hate Claire. Code Veronica was the very first RE game I was introduced to so I will have soft spots for Claire and Steve. I know how the majority feel about Steve but I don’t hate him. Claire is not my fav character now but she isn’t my least fav either. I find her alright. 

I am friends with people who dislike Claire and have differing opinions from me. That’s alright because at the end of the day, we will laugh about the things we have common interests in.

[Reference post]

So you get offended which is understandable but everyone is entitled to their own opinions whether you like it or not. I see a lot of Ada and Aeon hate in the fyeahresidentevilconfessions blog and I don’t see the need to reblog every single one of the hate confessions explaining why they’re “wrong” and I’m “right”. You can’t change opinions readily with just a single wall of text and I have no interest in playing verbal ping pong so I ignore the hate.

image

[Reference post 1, 2, 3]

And CJ makes a few out of character posts which doesn’t reference you at all. She could be talking about other people who went into her inbox. It could be very well that follower she lost.

image

[Reference post 1, 2, 3]

And you take it the wrong way by jumping into her inbox and demanding her to reply to your first question which may or may not have been eaten by tumblr. Your question might not have been sent at all! Tumblr is like that. It happens all the time. You could have asked her if she saw your question instead of jumping to conclusions.

I do agree she didn’t need to tag “angry claire hater” or “take shit get hit” etc because it does nothing though I would say your rudely phrased question will anger anyone. 

I once politely asked a Leon hater why she hated him and she thanked me for being polite before explaining. That is the way it should be done. Don’t jump into people’s inbox with an offensive statement right away. That’s rude.

Also, I don’t think word “fuck” is vile now. In this day and age it’s such a commonly used word that it isn’t the vulgarity as it was before. 

"That was fucking cool!" 

"It’s so fucking wicked!" 

"That’s fucked up."

"She’s fucking there?! OMG I gotta go see her!"

Get my point? CJ didn’t say Claire had to die or be beheaded or what not. She just didn’t want to buy the game ‘cos Claire is in it. What’s wrong with that? 

People can hate things rationally and also irrationally. It happens. Plus it was 4-5am when CJ did this reply. You won’t be able to think straight when you’re emotionally charged and sleep deprived.

[Reference post]

And you decide to jump down her throat and then attack the character she’s roleplaying which is completely irrelevant to the argument you’re having.

We RPers roleplay a character for fun. We don’t need such hate and bullshit thrown at us when we’re here to relax.

This is the internet where there’s lots of crap everywhere. You have to filter and ignore the hate because getting angry over a bunch of words written by people that you will never meet is meaningless.

Let this go and stop bothering my friend. Block her if you have to. Block me if you want to because I’m defending her. She did not ask me to do this. I’m doing this on my own accord because she’s my friend and calling her a cunt is unacceptable. 

I’m ignoring whatever you reblog after this because from the behavior you have shown so far, there will be more shouting and name calling which I did not do to you at all.

Channel your energy into something positive instead of being shrouded with anger and frustration. Think of rainbows and puppies whenever you see irrational hate. Tumblr savior is a great add-on to block posts you don’t want to see from certain people. You can block certain tags too like “Claire hate”.

"So you were working on viruses? That sounds…" Lisa paused. Well, it sounded a little outlandish, the idea people, scientists, could alter viruses…but then again, she’d been out of the loop for a while. "But then you two left…"

Lisa jumped a little as Alfred slammed the door into the wall, before looking at Alexia. ‘Move up’? Well, he probably meant to go through the door…right?

Shooting Alexia another nervous look, Lisa took a deep breath, before moving towards the door. It looked like some kind of warehouse, and she could see boxes and barrels below.

"It’s…it is safe, right?"

Alexia nodded.  No sense dragging up everything by adding in what had happened to her father.  Alexia scowled at Alfred, her way of saying that she didn’t approve of him treating them like soldiers.

"Yes, he did.  I think Alfred got confused between where we are and the past."  Alexia glanced around, even though the room was quite large, it felt oppressive.  As if the walls would close around her at any moment.

CLAIRE IS CONFIRMED TO BE IN REVELATIONS 2 OMFG SOMEBODY HOLD ME!

Claire Redfield will return as the playable lead and it is said that “In the time since we last saw her (Claire), she’s grown to be a seasoned veteran.”
Claire will be joined throughout the campaign with Moira Burton, daughter of the legendary Barry Burton.
The campaign will be playable in co-op or singleplayer.
When playing as Claire, her style will be more combat focused. Whereas Moira will be supplying Claire with health herbs, provided the flashlight and general support.
Claire will be the only player death that will result in a Game Over, one of Moira’s key roles will be to help keep Claire alive (though Claire can obviously heal herself).
The story will take place on an abandoned island detention facility.
The campaign will begin with Claire and Moira awakening after being abducted.
The events will take place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6.
Gameplay will be much more Survival Horror orientated (much like the first Resident Evil: Revelations), bringing the series back to its roots with less over the top action, unlike Resident Evil 5 and 6.
Fan feedback has played a part in the development of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Producer Okabe said that “The project has been finding the line between listening to fan feedback and also doing something different to confound expectations.”
Okabe also said that “I want this to be both a game that doesn’t lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series.” He also added that “Achieving that lofty goal by bringing together past and future will make this an itchy-tasty prospect indeed.”
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will feature a new “Afflicted” enemy type, which “may look like zombies, but are in fact something quite different.”
The Afflicted enemy will be both fast and able to deal heavy damage to the player. It is also said that they will force the player to decide whether to take them head-on, sneak up using stealth and applying a take-down or the player can run for the hills and “preserve ammo”.
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will run at 1080p and 60fps (for the PC and new gen versions at least).

EDIT: SOME SPOILERS REVEALED: BARRY WILL GO OUT TO SAVE CLAIRE AND HIS DAUGHTER AFTER FINDING OUT THEY WERE ABDUCTED!

ooc:  let’s play repeated plot point bingo with this shall we?  How many plot points have been repeated from other RE games?

  • New character is child of existing character (originally shown in RE6)
  • Claire wakes up in a detention facility (CODE Veronica)
  • Character from RE1 coming to the rescue of another character (CODE Veronica, 5, 6, Revelations)
  • Claire being made to babysit during a biohazard (2, Degeneration)

It’s Raining Heroes

Figuring that it wouldn’t be a good idea to wait around, and that a smaller target would be harder to hit, Alexia pushed open the door and rolled out of it.  Running for the side of a building, she watched as a twenty foot creature stomped her car.  As it lifted its foot Alexia could see the remains.  Flat as a pancake and nowhere near as tasty.

Staying close to the buildings, Alexia slowly edged towards the soldiers as she watched BOW Girl sprint in the opposite direction, heading right at the creature with a manic grin on her face.  Reaching the soldiers, Alexia held her hands in the air.

"Civilian!" She called out, hoping they wouldn’t have itchy trigger fingers.  She hadn’t thought of running in any other direction, they would have seen her coming so running in any other direction wouldn’t have been wise.  Alexia looked back and hoped that BOW Girl was alright.

     With a grin she was up on her feet running at the creature. Of course she was, something bigger was a great challenge. But Ogroman, was thirty plus feet tall. She had read about them before and why there was one here? Well that was a question for another day.

Standing near it’s feet. It stopped looking down at her. With a whistle, she placed both hands up gesturing for him to continue. “Come to mama.” A smirk as she got ready. With a kick she was sliding into the concrete that made the street.

"Okay— so that was stupid." Looking up, she glanced at the blond woman. "Do you have any ideas on how to beat this thing?" Standing up she swept the rumble off her outfit.

Alexia watched as BOW Girl went skidding down the street.  A hit like that must have hurt.  Looking back at the hulking behemoth, Alexia watched as it stumbled back in pain and clutched at something behind its back.  It spun around and Alexia saw a large cord protruding from its back.

"There!  Target that thing on his back.  It causes him pain." Alexia yelled.  The soldiers opened fire, round after round slamming into the behemoth’s flesh.  It it seemed to do was stagger him, because he started to flail his arms around, staring at the floor.  Alexia hoped it hadn’t managed to hurt BOW Girl.

Just for the Weekend

"Yeah," Alfred mumbled as Hunnigan commented on how long it had been since Alfred had spent more than a day without Alexia being around.

Listening to Ingrid intently as she talked about her family life, Alfred turned in his seat and checked on Skadi.  She was awake, but still lying down, head turned towards her human.

"Sure, no problem.  Skadi doesn’t seem like a handful and no doubt A will have gotten used to Lexie." Alfred glanced at the clock.  He thought the old saying seemed right, time certainly flew when you were having fun.

"Do you travel abroad often then?  I mean on holiday as opposed to work." Alfred asked.

  A loud scoff.
     ”Sorry—”
  Quick to apologize, he was asking a simple and valid question.
     ”Yes— well I try to.
       I’ve often had to reschedule holidays due to work.
      There has been more than one Christmas celebrated sometime around
        the second to third week of January.”
  Her phone beeped, almost as if it had heard her talking. A text alert sounded. Checking the mirrors, she pulled off the freeway at the next off-ramp, circling back around under the freeway and pulling into a small restaurant/gas stop.
  Phone went off again. Ingrid put the car in park and cut the engine. It had been about three hours since their last stop and Skadi would need to relieve herself soon. Motion back to the dog, she picked her phone up.
     ”Can you clip her leash onto her collar, please. 
      We are too close to the freeway to let her roam free like last time.
      My mom wants me to call her quickly.
     Just take her out to the field over there, she is usually quick to do her business.” Lifting her phone to her ear, she heard the phone buzz once, then her mother come on, starting in with a line of questions.
     ”Yes mother, we are fine.
       I told you it was going to take a few hours… well it is Friday.
       Everyone is on the road today…. I understand… yes….
       Don’t worry about us.
       We ate before we left.
       Yes Alfred is with me… I don’t know, Mom.
       He isn’t a picky eater.
       I’m sure whatever you make is fine.”
  She gave him a wave to go on without her.

Alfred nodded as Hunnigan turned off the freeway.  Hunnigan’s line of work probably didn’t leave much room for a social life.  As they pulled up and Ingrid picked up her phone, Alfred picked up Skadi’s leash.

"Sure.  No problem." Alfred said before Ingrid held the phone to her head.  Turning around in his seat, Alfred clipped the leash to the top of Skadi’s collar then placed its handle within reach of the back car door.  Getting out of the car, Alfred opened the back door for Skadi and waited for her to climb down off the seat.  It didn’t take long, Skadi walked ahead of Alfred, not too fast to the point of pulling him along by the leash but not so slowly that he would walk into her.

Walking into the middle of the field, Alfred watched as Skadi started to circle around before lifting her leg.

"It’s okay, I won’t look." He joked, turning away and watching the cars flying up the overpass onto the freeway.  Holding his left hand in his back pocket, the right hand holding the leash, Alfred watched the sun reflecting on the car windscreens as it started to set.  It looked beautiful.

Feeling a few tugs on the end of the leash, Alfred looked down.  Skadi had done her business and was ready to go.  She was stood facing the car with her head craned around to look at him, as if ti say, ‘Are you coming?’.

"Guess I zoned out there huh." Alfred remarked as he started to walk her back to the car.  Closing the gate behind him, he could see Hunnigan as could Skadi.  As soon as he was finished Skadi started walking to her owner, a lot quicker than she had walked into the field.

"You were right, she was no trouble at all." Alfred said as he opened the back door and Skadi climbed back up on the seat.
