EVENTS:


Klimt gets up, leaving Peggy to sit somewhat awkwardly next to Curie and Emilia. Approaching the fighting party, he lets the goo-covered, blood-spitting Malia take a look at his wounds.

True to her nature, the girl is exceptionally skillful with sewing supplies. A simple gastric bypass lets Klimt's remaining entrails connect to his excretory system once again, and the bone-deep (or rather, steel pipe-deep) wound on his leg is quickly sutured and bandaged up. He feels good as new!



Eigla uses her coffin and natural regeneration to get her legs looking reasonably human again. She elects to still leave her guts hanging out, so as to facilitate the use of her crawling flesh.

Four of the creatures were defeated in the battle, and the shieldmaiden cautiously examines the remains. One was completely liquefied by Malia, and lies as a malodorous puddle on the floor. Two others were stabbed and shot, their still-twitching, chitinous bodies lying crumpled on the stairs, mucus-filled thoraxes slowly deflating onto the steps.

The final one is standing as if frozen in time, braindead due to Rosa's precise shot. Its body seems to be nearly intact, should you wish to study it further.


Meanwhile, the sharkgirl coaxes her Coffin into producing non-fishy parts, a rather hard task considering the large metal crate has been all but completely absorbed by her expanding mass. Eventually, a tear appears on her back, allowing her to reach inside and retrieve a large sheet of skin and several bundles of muscles. The former is carefully cut to repair her ripped-up navel and sides, while the latter pad out her legs and glutes, improving the fit of her secondhand limbs.

All in all, she's starting to look less like a giant shark with limbs, and more like a giant person with shark parts, or maybe some sort of orca monstergirl. It's an improvement, in a way!

Use my flip knife to carefully dissect the corpses, using Vines to support myself. Try not to touch anything directly.

Do the creatures look like modified humans, or mutated bugs?

EVENTS:

Eigla decides to ditch the stereotypical zombie look, and wills her guts to roll back up inside her abdomen. A couple of stitches later, they're safely secured. She'll not be able to unleash her crawling flesh as easily, but it feels a lot more comfortable.

Using her vines to hold to the stairwell's handrails, she suspends herself off the floor, sliding forwards until she reaches the two destroyed creatures. With her flip knife, she carefully begins cutting them open.


Hmmmm. Strange. There's, vague hints of humanity in them, but - there's just so little to work with! There's no identifiable organs within their fluid-filled bodies, and the few muscles within their chitinous joints are merely accessories to tube-based hydraulic joints. Cracking open one of their featureless white skulls, she finds it empty save for several small sacs of liquid, that seem to connect to a long, retractable prosbocis. There is no nervous system to speak of, save for a small cluster of neurons at the base of its neck. A thin white cord comes out of a pustule-like growth between its shoulder blades, uncoiling for several yards before connecting to the mucus layer on the floor.


Rosa approaches the frozen bug. A chunk of its neck has been blown off, and its head has flopped down to a side. Otherwise, it is perfectly still, somehow not falling despite its off-center stance. Its abdomen pulsates softly, and small amount of fluid flow through the veins on its wing-like cowl. Alive or not, its body seems to still be functional.


Klimt helps Malia clean herself off, ignoring the glares Curie shoots him. It's surprisingly easy to get the mucus stains out of her dress - the fibers seem to bristle and shiver on their own, shaking off most of the milky fluid. Still, the girl makes sure every inch of her body is clean before being satisfied - She really must hate bugs!

"They're connected to the mucus, I think. Puppets? Stay on guard, there could be more."

> Sever the mucus cords. Carefully inspect and dissect the one Rosa is referring to. Vines to support.

Prepare to Defend/Protect if danger shows itself.

EVENTS:


Malia cautiously steps back as the others get closer and closer to the mucus mass, shivering involuntarily as she notices Klimt sticking his hand into the goop. Indeed, a few near-transparent nerves crisscross the slime, forming a tree-like network that wriggles and retracts upon being touched.

Meanwhile, Eigla cuts the two corpses' umbilical lines. The creatures spasm for a moment before falling still once again, indicating there was still some sort of a connection. The frozen one's response is much more subdued, its connection already having been severed by the shot.

Carefully cutting around the bug's abdomen, she extracts the central fluid sac. Very soft, and seemingly inert. Tasting a drop of the mucus, she finds it essentially devoid of Pattern. Not as versatile as straight-up Flesh, but could indeed be used as filler material.
