[ open log with york ]

who. agent york and YOU!!
what. fightin' adjutants and tryin' to survive during the event
where. anywhere in zeta district
when. all during the event -- friday, saturday, and sunday!
warnings. violence, probably!

[ Well, there's one thing York can say for Omega so far, and that's that the place is never boring. At Sacrosanct, things could go quiet and dull for weeks on end, but here, there's always something going on. And while she'd rather it were something a little less deadly, she'll take what she can get.

She has to be careful here, because there aren't any teleporters they'll pop back out from if they die. Here, they've only got one life. So she's being about as careful as she can stand to be, always leaving the apartment clad in full armor and well-armed. She doesn't know how many of these things there are roaming around out here, but there are plenty to kill, that's for sure. Besides which, she knows there have to be folks out there who can't defend themselves -- and okay, York doesn't really consider herself a hero or anything, but she figures as long as she's out here shooting these things she might as well be doing some good.

She can be found around the district at varying points over the weekend, either keeping the adjutants from getting too close to her and Wash's apartment, or venturing out to other areas to do a little pest control. She'll be happy to temporarily team up with anyone else out shooting adjutants, and to save anyone who might need it -- or if your character is more the type to do the saving, feel free. York needs her ass saved once in a while, too. ]

[.. yeah, that's one thing she can say about omega, too. and it's never in a good way, really - because there's always going to be some kind of trouble going on, and unfortunately, this is no exception.

she's been keeping up with as much as she can, because these things are hideous - she's heard about them, heard about what happened to the station during the cerberus invasion, and while she'd assumed everything had been taken care of, apparently it isn't the case.

benji runs into york as she's shooting at a group of them, cloaking silently and getting right into the middle of them - and then it's slash, slash, slash with her sword and they all go down in lifeless, disgusting lumps. when she de-cloaks, it's with a slight shimmer that york will probably barely see before there's a small woman standing in front of her in full armor.

she places her sword at her back and looks down at the pile of bodies she's left, scowling behind the safety of her visor.]
Ugh .. and I thought husks were disgusting.
techburst: (man got a crib)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-03-02 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
[once they have a little bit of breathing room, benji pauses enough to take one - a nice, deep thing that she can feel all the way to her diaphragm and then lets go with a slow whoosh. she shakes her head, checking the magazine on her pistol to make sure she has enough rounds to last her for another swarm of the ugly things.]

Kinda have to be fast in my class. [she offers the information in a sort of flat tone, but don't mistake it for unfriendliness; she's just used to taking care of what needs taking care of first before she allows for anything else.] Husks are .. kind of like these things only not glowing blue and they only care about killing you instead of trying to turn you into what they are.

[husks can't turn people, anyway .. only the collectors can do that.]
techburst: (what other rule there's left to break)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-03-20 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[she isn't paying attention to york checking out her armor. and she wouldn't have understood the connection between her attitude and the other agent, just because she didn't know her. but she was pretty much nothing but business. you didn't get to being an n7 with anything else.

she tilts her head to the side, amused at what the other says about her amor.]
You should see about getting a replacement suit, then. I'm pretty sure you could find soemone on Omega that has something to your liking.

Call me whatever you want, but most people call me Benji. Or Major, if they're in my squad. York .. that a nickname, or what?
techburst: (when you're roaming through the jungle)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-03-25 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[she gives a small laugh at that.] I guess I can't blame you .. that does look a little bulky. How can you even move around in a suit like that? [it's an honest question, really, because york's armor looks like it weight a metric ton and she can't imagine having such restricted movement as she thinks a suit like that would offer.

and that lazy salute just makes her shake her head.]
Like I said, it's only Major if you're in my squad, which you clearly aren't .. so call me Benji. My sister calls me Benj, so I answer to that, too.

[project, huh .. she's pretty interested in knowing more about this, but she doesn't think right now is the best time to start asking questions. there's no telling when there might be another group of adjutants coming right at them.] I'll call you whatever you want to be called - but I have to say, Natalie is a very pretty name. I have a Fury on my team with the very same one .. I've always liked it.
techburst: (feeling like i fell out of the sky)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-03 08:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[well she's never had a problem with taking someone out to dinner. she also tends to call it like she sees it.

she's looking around them, just waiting for another group of those things to surround them, ready to let out another wave of electricity at the first sign of their approach.]
Now that we've gotten that figured out .. [because names are important, okay.]

They die just like anything else, really. Shoot them, stab them, shock them .. they'll still fall over. Got any special techniques? Biotics?

[because she totally expects you to know what those are!]
techburst: (i guess my faith)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-07 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Remind me to explain what biotics are once we get out of this. But guns are always useful, no matter what kind of situation you're in.

[she's smirking underneath her helmet when she sees another couple of adjutants approach, and she doesn't say a thing before she's activating her cloak and sweeping across the field to shove the end of her sword right through one of the things before decloaking again.] Oh .. just things like that. I'm not too bad with a sniper rifle, either.
techburst: (feeling like i fell out of the sky)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-11 07:59 pm (UTC)(link)

she's still grinning behind her helmet as she lashes out with her sword again, knocking back another couple of those ugly things as she watches york take down one with her rifle.]
You're not bad with that thing! You ever want to do any target practice, let me know. My sister can't shoot to save her life.
techburst: (but the drinks are on us)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-14 12:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah? Where the hell're they?

Oh, they don't. At least not to anyone that isn't in my class. N7s get special training.
techburst: (no pit stops)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-16 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Somehow I think our militaries are a little different.

[there's laughter in her voice, and while she realizes this probably isn't the best time to be making friends, once they're out of this, she's going to offer to buy york a drink or something.]

.. Wash .. York .. what kind of program gives names like that?

techburst: (what are the choices left for me?)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-18 03:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[well .. this is what hanging out with her is going to get you. some really odd questions about where you've come from.

but her answer makes more sense than she thinks it should.]
Somehow I was expecting something more .. goofy. But that actually makes sense. Why states?

[she hums in the back of her throat, thinking of what it would be like if the alliance gave everyone in the n7 program codenames like that.] .. My sister would want to be Hawaii. So she could make the 'getting lei'd' joke.

Why did I think of that.
techburst: (full entree)

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-21 09:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[she just huffs out a laugh and resigns herself to the fact that the other is probably right - and zoe tends to rub off on people. that's just how she is.]

You're .. probably right. Much as I'm reticent to admit it.

[pause.] Maybe no one wanted to work on remembering real names and that was the first thing they thought of?
techburst: (no refs)

don't mind the bare shoulders ahem. the expression was good okay.

[personal profile] techburst 2013-04-25 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
.. Huh.

[it's all she says, all she has time to say before she nearly gets blindsided by an adjutant that had snuck up on her right side, and she gives it a nice slash of her sword to show it just what she thinks of it.

she doesn't like thinking about what her parents are going through right now, back on earth .. and she just prays to whatever higher power there might actually be that they're safe.]
